Hutchison House Museum 270 Brock Street, Peterborough - The Victorian era saw an increase in the interest in fairies and elves as settlers looked back to the folk tales of their ancestors.

Friday, Jan. 31 - 9:30 - noon. Cost per child is $20. Children are required to bring their own peanut free snack. Registration is required. This workshop is appropriate for children ages 6-12.
