Workshops on the Farm
Stony Kill offers workshops for children and adults throughout the year. Our classes are taught by retired teachers and local crafters. Please check out our current schedule below. Proceeds from our classes go to the Stony Kill Foundation and aid in feeding and maintaining our animals.
Two classes this Saturday, July 8, 11 am and 1 pm
This form of Tai Chi is adaptable to all levels of fitness and health, as well as being suitable for ages 14 years and up. Learn the foundation principles of Tai Chi, improve your posture and reduce stress and anxiety with this graceful form of movement.
Classes will be taught by Stacey Backenroth and held by the gardens at the Manor House. Bring a ground cover (blanket, yoga mat, etc.) and a small pillow to sit on the ground. You may also bring your own chair if you do not wish to sit on the ground. Please wear comfortable, relaxed clothing. Shoes optional if you wish to wiggle your toes in the grass!
Join us for one class or come for both! $15 suggested donation. Don’t forget to enjoy the animals by visiting the barn and our walking trails nearby while you are here!
