Delightful Demonstrations

Education can be fun, too. Our interactive demonstrating artists will show children the arts of paper and broom making, weaving, painting, and pottery. Glass blowers, blacksmiths, and coin makers demonstrate their craft and a true replica of the Guttenberg Press will allow children to see how bookmaking changed the course of history.
