Many “Funshops” Available At Sauder Village This Summer


Sauder Village WEBArchbold, OH – New this year Sauder Village is offering “Funshops” to provide guests with an in-depth look at some interesting topics of days-gone-by. For a small additional fee, Sauder Village guests can attend a one-hour session to learn more about spinning, gardening, tinsmithing, historic cooking and more!

“Education is a cornerstone of our mission at Sauder Village,” shared Kim Krieger, PR/Media Relations. “While our costumed guides and working craftsmen share a wealth of information through stories and hands-on experiences, our new “Funshops” will offer guests a more in-depth opportunity to learn something new!”

Sauder Village “Funshops” will be available on a first come, first served basis on select dates throughout July and early August. Each opportunity will be held at 1:00 p.m. and there are a limited number of spaces available.

A “Spinning Funshop” will be held on July 22 – offering guests an opportunity to learn more about spinning from carding wool to working on the spinning wheel. Garden Tours will be held on July 23, providing an in-depth look at the many gardens in the Historic Village and some hands-on gardening activities. On August 1 guests will have the chance to visit cows, help separate cream, and make butter during the “Dairy Funshop”. Guests will learn to make a tin cookie cutter and icicle tree ornament during the Tinsmithing sesson on July 23. A “One-Room School” program on July 24 will let guests participate in recitation, make a copy book and more! Other Funshops include Historic Cooking on July 29 with a focus on the art of bread-making and a “Behind the Scenes – Curators Tour” on July 31.

To participate in a Funshop activity guests need to register at the Admissions Desk by 12:30 p.m. (activities begin at 1:00) on the day of the program. There is a small additional fee for the “Funshops”. The fee is $10.00 for adults and $6.00 for children ages 2-16. A discount is available for Sauder Village members – $8.00 for adults and $5.00 for children ages 2-16. Workshops are subject to change.
