Home Educator Experience at Colonial Williamsburg

February 20-March 5, 2008

Events of the 1770s pushed Williamsburg and its residents into Revolution and Independence. Yet, while politics raged, domestic life and work as well as commerce continued.

Learn about running a household and preparing foods, colonial diversions and pastimes as well as education and apprenticeships at the Benjamin Powell House. This original 18th-century site will open exclusively for spring participants in our Home Educator Experience.

Explore our shops of our various tradespeople, such as the Blacksmith, Cabinetmaker, Silversmith, Milliner, and Tailor, to find out what kind of work you might have done once you finished your apprenticeship.

Other Upcoming Special Programs:

  • African American Programs: February 1-29, 2008
  • Fall Home Educator Weeks: September 6-19, 2008--Expanded to two full weeks this fall!
  • 4th Annual Storytelling Festival: September 19-21, 2008
