Create and learn about the notable gowns and suits that have graced Greenwich weddings through generations. During two Sunday, January 9 sessions (2:00 pm and 3:00 pm), families can work together to explore the past and create wedding attire for the future in this "hands on, minds on" workshop complete with paper, scissors and lace.

A special mini runway will be built for participants to show off their works, and they will also take an exclusive tour of the Historical Society's exhibition "From This Day Forward: Looking Back at Greenwich Weddings."

The workshop is sponsored by the Perrot Memorial Library and held in conjunction with the Historical Society's current show on the history of Greenwich weddings. It will be conducted by Timothy D. Bellavia, an award winning children's author, illustrator and educator. Mr. Bellavia recently presented his doll-making curriculum on the International Day of Tolerance at the United Nations on behalf of the "We Are Family Foundation" and currently works with the New York City Department of Education to develop curricula that teach cultural diversity through integration of the arts.

Ages four and up. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Reservations required.

Free by advance reservation but space is limited. Call 203-869-6899 for reservations.

The workshops will take place at the Greenwich Historical Society's Vanderbilt Education Center, 39 Strickland Road, Cos Cob, CT. For more info, visit www.greenwichhistory.org
