About the Event

Love gingerbread? Dream of building your own home or designing a structure? Then this class is for you!

Learn the basics of building construction and architectural design at this all-ages, family-friendly workshop taught by Eric Cheever, the fun-loving Director of Exhibits & Curatorial at the Stearns History Museum.

Eric will show you the inner workings of construction and design and teach about basic building elements during this hands-on, interactive class. Engage your inner architect or builder while creating your own unique structural masterpiece with gingerbread kits from Cold Spring Bakery. It’s sure to be a sweet treat.

Held at the Robinson-Stanton House, new home of the Benton County Historical Society, stick around following the class for a tour courtesy of Mary Ostby, executive director. The site's unique history and recent building renovation and design is bound to stimulate exciting gingerbread architeture creativity. Special thanks to class sponsor, GLTArchitects.

Class size is limited so register today! Tickets are $15.
