It's a St. Patrick’s Day-inspired edition of Museum Kids on Saturday, March 3rd at 10am. Adelle Webster from Glocca Morra Farms will be on hand to help kids make their very own hand felted shamrock brooch. 

Felting is the art of sticking wool fibres together with the use of a needle and foam block. The wool locks itself together with multiple punctures and becomes firm and pliable enough to create shapes and sculptures. Children aged 4-plus, with the assistance of a parent or guardian, will enjoy working on this fun craft.
