Southeast’s Crisp Museum, located at the River Campus hosts its second annual “Wind Chime Workshop” allowing visitors to create their own homemade windchimes using supplies that have been collected or donated.
The event provided patrons with an afternoon of fun, laughter and music for the whole family.
Crisp Museum Outreach Specialist Gary Tyler led the event on September 12th for up to 8 guests to create their own wind chimes that anyone can find and use in their own home. Supplies include wood, fishing line, keys, old nails, and little bells that all come together to form a beautiful tinkling sound for your porch or window.
Tyler says there was no wrong way to make a wind chime, allowing guests to utilize the supplies however they saw fit. This event was initially going to take place in March or April, but was pushed back due to COVID-19. Hosting the event later than intended allowed guests who wanted to come last year to experience it, as well as allow newly interested guests to create fun hands on crafts.
Events coming up at the museum include Game Night at the Museum on September 24th from 5 to 9 p.m. and Heritage Day on October 3 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
