Do you know a child who has always wanted to take up knitting as a hobby, but never had a chance to learn how? Check out our new Beginner Knitting Class for Kids!

Taught by Peggy Taylor, a spinner-weaver and fiber artist, this two-part class will give kids in grades 4-8 a chance to try their hand at this relaxing hobby. Classes will be held at the Atheneum Visitors Center in New Harmony from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 9th and Saturday, March 16th. Parents and guardians are encouraged to accompany children on the program, and adult-size knitting needles will be available to the adults to learn to knit, too! Historic New Harmony staff will be present and assisting with the program on both days.

Cost: $15. The price includes the cost of each supply kit (knitting needles and yarn needles, worsted weight yarn, bag). Please indicate when you register your child whether the adult who accompanies them would like to purchase an adult-sized kit in addition to the child-sized kit.

The class is limited to 8 students, so be sure to register soon!

To register your child or for more information, contact Heidi Taylor-Caudill, Community Engagement Manager, at 812-682-6133 or
