The Taber Museum hosted a free workshop for children focusing on the colonial craft of fraktur on Saturday, March 13, 2021.
Talented artist Catheal Weiser conducted the workshop. Fraktur is hand drawn artwork common in the early history of America and Germany. They are illuminated records of events such as birth, marriage, and baptisms. In the fraktur workshop the participating kids learned the history and technique of this early American art form and how to design and create their own certificate.
The workshop was underwritten by a grant from the Free and Accepted Masons, Ivy Lodge 106.
