Hands-on History: Queer Pride & Possibility

June 1 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Hands-on History is a free activity series every first and third Saturday of every month. Open to the public!

Happy Pride Month!

For our arts & crafts, we will be designing rainbow salt dough heart ornaments popularized in the Victorian Era! We will also be discussing the symbolism of flowers for queer folks in the Victorian Era (floriography).

While King Manor Museum does not have concrete evidence of queer inhabitants, stop by and learn about “Looking for Queer Possibility in the Museum” by Margaret Middleton. Copies of the booklet will be available for visitors. Take it on a tour of the museum and see if you can identify queerness in the King Family!

Hands On History is a FREE family program series held each first and third Saturday of the month at King Manor from 1-4pm.
