Historic toys, traditional skills

The Valley Museum and Archives organized traditional skills demonstrations every Friday for the last two months. They featured carding wool, ice cream, bannock, pasta making, wheat weaving, drop spinning, canning, pickling, flint knapping, and traditional toys. All demos were done by local artisans to illustrate skills once used in the Robson Valley. Last week the theme was historic toys.
