Get cozy in the atmospheric surroundings of Wyckoff Farmhouse with a free day of exploring history and handcrafts.
This month, the Farmhouse Family Day, a monthly free open house at the 17th century farmhouse, focuses on knitting-themed activities. The day is open to visitors of all ages to learn about fibers, explore the historic house, participate in a scavenger hunt and try their hand at colonial games. There’ll be a finger-knitting activity — no needles required. Experienced knitters are also encouraged to bring their own projects to join in on a winter’s afternoon of crafting.
The finger-knitting activity begins at 1 p.m. on Saturday, January 19 at the Wyckoff House Museum at 5816 Clarendon Road. But the house is also open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for the other fun family activities. Admission is free. For more information check out their event page.
