Historian to teach 1840s stenciling at Mich. site

BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) — A southern Michigan historic site is set to host a class on 1840s stenciling.

The two-hour class for children ages 5 to 15 is set for Saturday at the Walker Tavern Historic Site in Brooklyn.

It’s to be taught by historian Laurie Perkins and begin with a brief tour of the site.

The kids are to learn ways stenciling was used to decorate homes during the 1840s.

Following the tour, students are to try their hand at stenciling by copying a stencil pattern from the wall of Walker Tavern.

Reservations are required, and there’s a $5 fee per child. An accompanying adult is free.
