CRAFTSMAN KIDS: Games and Activities for growing hands and minds

Craftsman Kids banner new

In an October 1913 article in The Craftsman, Gustav Stickley wrote that "the Craftsman movement stands for the right of the children to health and happiness through an education that will develop hands as well as heads."


On Family Days at the Stickley Museum we feature screen-free, hands-on, family-friendly activities and crafts for developing hands and minds! While you may not be able to visit the museum in person, we're happy to share some of our favorite handcrafts and old-fashioned games with a Craftsman spirit! Give these a try at home!

 

Children should always be supervised by an adult.

ONLINE EXHIBITION: Things Wrought by The United Crafts

Things wrought 1

This online exhibition, curated by Jonathan Clancy, Director of Collections and Preservation, features nineteen pieces of early ash furniture made by the United Crafts Workshops, all with intact and rare green finishes. A notoriously fickle color, Stickley's fugitive green was neither widely produced, nor able to withstand the ravages of time and ultraviolet exposure. 
 
This exhibition presents Clancy's new research on this early furniture, the structure of Stickley's factory, and the laborers he employed. View the Exhibition Here ]
