Summer at the Headley-Whitney

Summer has certainly arrived in Kentucky, and the Museum is celebrating the best of the season!

We kicked off our fifth-annual Headley-Whitney Wednesday Workshop series with a delicious and colorful workshop: painting with chocolate!


Participants learned how to paint chocolate molds, tried their hand at creating chocolate creations on white chocolate canvases, and made abstract candy bags to take their goodies home in (if they could wait that long!)  This is a perennial favorite from the Headley-Whitney Wednesday series for children; look out for a chocolate workshop for adults in the future!


The following week, we celebrated the first day of summer with a tie-dying workshop for kids.  Participants learned about the color wheel, how to tie cloth to make groovy patterns, and about the basics of tie-dying before diving in and creating their own colorful creations!


Next week, our workshop will focus on Eco-Jewelry, and participants will make several pieces to take home.  Call the Museum at 859-255-6653 to register, and stay tuned to see what our workshop’ers create!
