Old Timey Handcrafts

Cliffs of the Neuse was once the site of a working plantation and remnants of the buildings and landscaping remain within the park today! (We encourage visitors to check out the old wagon path staff have been working on clearing--it runs from the overlook parking lot to the longleaf trail!)

To celebrate this past we'll be doing some Old Timey Handcrafts this summer:

Join a Ranger for four sessions of Old Timey Crafts. A different craft will be demonstrated for each session. Sign-up is not required, but the DIY Ice Cream will be on a "as supplies last" basis.

The Cold Process Soap and Pickling programs will be geared towards adults while the Ice Cream and Weaving program will be a fun family activity.

These are free programs.

Fri., July 12th at 6:00pm: DIY Ice Cream
Fri., July 19th at 6:00pm: Cold Process Soap Demonstration
Fri., July 26th at 6:00pm: Pickling
Fri., August 2nd at 6:00pm: Weaving (Yarn)
