Family workshops at County Museum


Two workshops focused on family creativity are planned for the month of January at the San Bernardino County Museum in Redlands. All activities and supplies are included with paid museum admission; advanced reservations are strongly suggested.


On Saturday, January 12, from 2 to 5 p.m. families can learn “Fabric Collage,” creating tapestry-inspired collage scenes from scrap fabric. Each family member can create an individual collage, or a family can collaborate on a group project.


“Create-A-Book” is scheduled for Saturday, January 26 from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Participants will make a variety of unusual books suitable for poetry, journaling, memoirs, scrapbooks, recipes, or more.


“These workshops provide a wonderful opportunity for families to work together creatively and to take home the results of their efforts,” said Jolene Redvale, museum curator of education. “And we design the workshops using easily available materials and simple techniques, so participants will be able to continue with new projects at home.”


The programs are designed for families with children aged 6 and up, and some children may require adult assistance to complete their projects. Each workshop is made possible by a grant from the S L Gimbel Foundation, a component fund of The Community Foundation Serving Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. Because the workshops have limited space, advance reservations can be made by calling the museum’s education division at (909) 307-2669 ext. 256. Visitors with reservations should arrive ten minutes before the workshop start time or their spaces will be released to visitors on waiting lists.

General admission is $8 (adult), $6 (military or senior), $5 (student), and $4 (child aged 5 to 12). Children under five and Museum Association members are admitted free. Parking is free.
