Public gingerbread workshops for children and families are presented by the Erie Canal Museum every year while its holiday Gingerbread Gallery is on display. This year, we are pleased to present these workshops at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Saturday, December 8, and at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Thursday, December 27. The workshops take place in the Museum’s historic Weighlock Building, located at 318 Erie Boulevard East in the heart of downtown Syracuse, New York.
During this public program, children and adults view the creations on display in the Gingerbread Gallery, and Museum staff and volunteers teach them how to create their own houses to take home using milk cartons, graham crackers, icing, and a variety of edible decorations. Each workshop lasts about an hour, and is a great way for children to put their energy and creativity to use. Preregistration and prepayment are required. Registration includes all materials and admission to the 33rd annual Gingerbread Gallery to benefit the Erie Canal Museum. Admission for Museum members is $8 per child and free for accompanying adults. Admission for the general public is $12 per child and $5 per accompanying adult. To preregister online, click here. Members are asked to phone 315-471-0593, ext. 12, to receive the Member discount.
Our gingerbread workshops are fun, festive events every holiday season. Be sure to register for one of this year’s programs today!
