About the Event


Love gingerbread? A fan of architecture and construction? 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, kid-oriented workshop taught by Eric Cheever, the fun-loving Exhibits & Collections Curator for 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 class.

Engage your inner architect or builder while creating your own structural masterpiece using icing and gingerbread. It’s sure to be a sweet treat!

Perfect for individuals or small groups. Class size is limited so register today. Rethos: Places Reimagined requires all attendees to wear a face mask and maintain social distancing for the duration of the class.

This class is brought to you by Rethos: Places Reimagined, and organized by the Morrison County Historical Society, its Central MN Education Coordinator. Rethos Education is financed in part by the State of Minnesota from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund through the Minnesota Historical Society.
