Enjoy s'mores, crafts at MacLachlan Woodworking Museum's WinterLight

November 30, 2015 -

Brighten-up the season: come to WinterLight, a celebration of trees and community at the MacLachlan Woodworking Museum, 2993 Highway 2, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 5.

Bring your family and friends out to craft seasonal decorations and activities both inside and outdoors.

Inside the cozy, festive museum, enjoy story time – or try your hand at making centrepieces, wreaths, orange pomanders, string art disks, cinnamon stick trees, paint-chip snowmen and mini-reindeers. You can even learn how to woodturn.

New this year: children can create a craft for the person they love in the children's secret gift room.

Outside, WinterLight activities include a bird show and tell with a nature walk and a campfire.

Holiday lights, carolers and an artisan market add magic to the day.

Complimentary refreshments are also available – including S'more fixings – coffee, tea, hot chocolate and hot cider. You can also get vegetarian chili, mac and cheese and baked goods at a nominal cost. 

Admission: get a family pass for just $13.10 or pay $5.45 for adults, $4.70 for students and seniors and $1.65 for children 5 to 12 (children under 5 are free).

The MacLachlan Woodworking Museum is located on the St. Lawrence River at Grass Creek Park, 2993 Highway 2 East, 613-542-0543, mwmuseum@cityofkingston.ca or visit woodworkingmuseum.ca
