The Hinsdale Historical Society is offering the opportunity to create authentic Victorian-era Valentine’s Day bags.
Children will learn the background of Victorian era Valentine’s Day crafts and make their own special bag to fill with whatever treats they choose for their Valentine.
The Valentine’s Day Workshop will take place from 10 a.m. to noon on Feb. 8, at the Immanuel Hall, 302 S. Grant St., Hinsdale. The cost is $5 per child for non-members and free for members.
Registration required at Registration@HinsdaleHistory.org or by calling 630-654-9500.
The society also is offering a presentation on The Story of Chocolate by Leslie Goddard from 7-9 p.m. on Feb. 12, at Immanuel Hall. The costs are $10 per person for members and $15 per person for nonmembers. It will include why people love chocolate so much, its history from the Aztecs and Mayans to Milton Hershey, how chocolate grows and why it is associated with romance and love.
This will be followed by a guided wine and chocolate tasting presented by The Village Cellar of Hinsdale.
