Fort King hosting another ‘Historic Homesteading’ class this weekend

The Fort King National Historic Landmark is continuing its series of historic cooking and crafting classes this weekend.

The next hands-on class, Rag Rugs, is being held on Saturday, May 14, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. During this class, participants will learn how to make a no-sew rag rug that they will be able to bring home.

While a choice of fabric will be offered to each participant, they are also welcome to bring their own fabric.

Upcoming hands-on classes in the ‘Historic Homesteading’ series will include creating a take-home cross stitch piece (Cross Stitch on Saturday, June 25) and making a full-size pioneer broom to take home or give as a gift (Broom Making on Saturday, July 23).

The classes are for adults over the age of 18, and there is a $15 fee to participate.

All classes will be held from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Fort King National Historic Landmark, which is located at 3925 E Fort King Street in Ocala.
