With the popularity of cooking television programs, the apron is making a big come back in American kitchens, and the Doak House Museum will soon be offering an opportunity for cooks to make and personalize their own waist aprons.
The museum, located on the Tusculum College campus, will offer three waist-apron making workshops in February. Workshops will be held Thursday, Feb. 12; Saturday, Feb. 14; and Wednesday, Feb. 18. Each workshop will be 10 a.m. to noon with light refreshments and an “apron fashion show” to follow from noon to 1 p.m.
Individuals looking for a fun activity to get out of the house and escape the winter blues, those wanting to learn a new skill or perhaps make some special gifts for family or friends can find what they are seeking at this workshop. Groups and clubs are also welcome to reserve an entire time slot.
All supplies and instruction will be provided as part of the workshops. The cost for the workshop is $20 per person with advanced registration.. Proceeds from the workshops will benefit the educational programs of the Doak House Museum.
Reservations are required, and tickets will be sold on a first-purchased, first-served basis. Tickets at the door will be $25, if available. Please call 423-636-8554 for ticket information. No refunds will be given.
