Manatee Village Historical Park will host Scarecrow Workshops on Saturday, September 22 from 10-11:30am or 12-1:30pm (both sessions are identical).
Ideal for families and small groups of friends: create a life-sized scarecrow. Each group will be provided with the armature (frame), stuffing, material for a head covering, and an instruction packet. Participants are asked to bring the clothing, shoes, and decorations/accessories for their scarecrow—tradition or creative encouraged.
This family-friendly event will also feature simple crafts for children.
Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy our courtyard after you are finished.
The cost of the workshop is $20 per scarecrow. For example, if a group of five people wanted to make one scarecrow together, they should register for one slot on the Sign-up Genius and the cost would be $20. Or if the group wanted to make two scarecrows, they should register for two slots on the sign-up, and the cost would be $40.
The children’s crafts will be available and free to workshop participants.
