Stenciling Workshop for Kids @ Wilton Historical Society

On March 3 from 11 am till 12:30 kids are invited to learn about stenciling from an expert at the Wilton Historical Society located on 224 Danbury Road. There will be so many motifs to choose from.

Flower baskets, graceful willow trees, wildflower sprays and simple vines plump with berries were typical motifs which decorated many plastered New England walls. According to Early American stenciling expert Suzanne Korn, “The history of decorative arts in America includes a colorful chapter between the years of 1778 and 1840 when itinerant wall stencilers roamed New England country roads, painting their colorful folk art in homes, inns, and taverns
along the way.”

Ms. Chen will be talking about this simple, colorful folk art, and its history. The workshop project will be stenciling a lace pattern on a plate. The children will help make their own snack, doily chocolate cookies. To register or find out more click here
