The staff of the Santa Fe Trail Center invites the public to sign up for a heritage craft program offered on 2 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 17. This is the perfect time of year to make a cornhusk doll to add to your fall decorations.
There are many uses for cornhusks, but none with such lasting appeal as the cornhusk doll. This challenging and intricate craft takes some dexterity, so the workshop is for participants who are 8-years old and up. Reservations are required because of limited space. To make reservations call the Trail Center at 620-285-2054. The length of the workshop is estimated to be 90 minutes.
Admission to this program and all third Sunday of the month programs is half price: Adults - $2, Students ages 12 to 18 - $1.50, children ages 6 to 11 - .75, Fort Larned Historical Society members – free.
The Santa Fe Trail Center is located two miles west of Larned on Hwy K- 156. Operating hours are Tuesday through Sunday 9 a.m.–5 p.m., closed Mondays from Labor Day to Memorial Day. For more information regarding this program, the museum, or how to become a Fort Larned Historical Society member call 620-285-2054.
