Programs for Adults

Creative Urban Homesteading Workshops

Launched by artist Lisa Sikorski, the Wyckoff farmhouse museum presents a yearly series of hands-on workshops for adults in creative urban homesteading. Topics have explored traditional farm based skills: hand sewing, natural dying, and preservation. Employing dye plants and crops grown on the Wyckoff farm, situated in the middle Brooklyn, these workshopswill be a collaborative experiment in the lost art of learning-by-doing.
