Horn: The Plastic of 1847

August 26 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Before the invention of plastic, animal horn was used in many products as it is strong, lightweight, waterproof, and easy to work with. It was the job of the Horner to create goods using horn, antlers, and sometimes bone. Come out and join Hancock Park District at the McKinnis farm to learn all about the craft of the Horner. Learn about the process of working with horn, view some goods made for horns and antlers, and watch a horner demonstration of creating a comb. Children who visit the Horner will receive a button that can be made into a craft or to use at home.

Meet at the McKinnis House at Litzenberg Memorial Woods by 6:30pm. This event is recommended for families with children ages 8 and up. The event is free and registration is not required to attend.
