The West Baton Rouge Museum will host a family workshop on Saturday, June 15, from 10:00 AM- Noon on Tricks of the Trade. Come for an introduction to blacksmithing, woodworking and metalworking where participants will see demonstrations at the forge inside the West Baton Rouge Museum’s blacksmith shop, learn how to use antique hand tools, and participate in hands-on activities.
This program is being offered in conjunction with the Prepared for Life: Scouting in West Baton Rouge exhibit which tells the stories of the boys who learned valuable life skills and made lasting friendships in the Boy Scout troops of West Baton Rouge. The exhibit will also explore the contributions of local Girl Scouts and the programs that they participated in. The museum will offer interactive programs in conjunction with the exhibit throughout the summer.
