2018 Program Listing

At Menokin, our programs celebrate and explore the stories of the people and cultures that lived at this site and carved their place in history by what they made. Dwellings. Cookware. Tools. Gardens. Clothing. Ideas. By learning and understanding these makers, we are able to make personal connections to the past, and applaud the skills and contributions of the individual in a collective society.

Now entering its 5th season, this lecture series is presented in a traditional way, yet delves into topics and demonstrations that are more out-of-the-ordinary in scope and subject matter.*
