Armor Week Family Workshops: Medieval Creations

TUESDAYTHURSDAY, FEBRUARY 16–18, 1:30–3PM

Return to the days of lords, knights and princesses—and even dragons—as Wave Hill pays homage to former resident and scholar of arms and armor Bashford Dean. Spend one, two or three afternoons building, decorating and populating your own medieval castle. Then come back for Armor Day on Saturday, for a day of merrymaking and medieval adventures! Try on armor, watch fencing and archery demonstrations, enjoy roaming minstrels and immerse yourself altogether in the knightly world.

Programs are geared to families with children between the ages of five and 10. Space is limited. $25/$15 Wave Hill Member per session includes one child and one adult. Additional child or adult is $10.

Armored Dwellings
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 16
Get inspired by olden tales and Arthurian legends, then design your own medieval castle, or contribute to our collective town with fortresses, turrets and moats. Using natural and recycled materials, jewels and metallic paints, build and decorate your dwelling, then illuminate it with miniature LED lights.

Stained-Glass Gems
WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 17
Design and create your own brilliant, multi-colored work of art that draws inspiration from the stained-glass rose windows of medieval times. Using foil tape and jewel-toned plastics and paints, build a beautiful sun-catcher or candleholder that will help your home feel a little like a medieval castle.

Entertaining the Court
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 18
Inspired by medieval puppetry and stories, construct an animated puppet of a royal ruler, a joking jester or a troubadour. Outfit yours with garments and protective armor made from fabric, foil, sequins and natural materials. Then bring it to life in your medieval castle or in Wave Hill’s delightful puppet theater.
