The Language of the Fan Workshop

Apr 20, 2013 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Tinker Swiss Cottage Museum, 411 Kent Street, Rockford, IL 61102
The Language of the Fan Workshop on April 20th. From batting flies to a symbol of royalty, the fan has witnessed dramatic changes in its history. Even though its origin remains wrapped in obscurity, the hand fan has survived for thousands of years by similarly adapting to fit a variety of needs. As its uses became more involved, the fan became more intricate in design and a language developed among the aristocratic and genteel branch of society. This workshop will provide a short presentation on the wonderful world of fans and teach individuals "How to Fan a Flirt". Workshop starts at 1pm. Price of Workshop is $10 or $15 (includes complimentary fan). Tinker Swiss Cottage Museum, 411 Kent Street, Rockford, IL 61102
