Chief Pontiac Programs, Early American Skills Training at the Kensington Living History Village

 

The Chief Pontiac Programs Committee is pleased to offer an Early American Skills Experience at the new living history themed area located within the Kensington Metro-Park Farm Center.
The activites are designed for youth and adults aged 14 and up.

Learn the skills that all settlers on a farm needed to know to be self sufficient. A farmer in an early settlement needed to be able to make or repair almost anything themselves.

The Blacksmith shoppe is in place, as well as a multi use shelter and Kitchen building with an open hearth and a Brick Bake Oven. The woodworking shoppe is complete.

The Fiber Arts and Life Skills will be open for classes in 2016 under the multi use shelter, where you can learn skills that were necessary to every day life on the Michigan Frontier such as making clothing or accessories. weaving and spinning, fire building, candle making, and other life skills from pioneer days.

For more information and details about the classes, fees and patch program, please see the Early American Skills Experience Web Page
