4-H Food and Clothing Project Workshops

The Licking County 4-H Food and Fashion Board will be hosting their Food & Clothing Projects Workshop again this year. This workshop is designed to help members who are new to a food or clothing project learn what they will need to do to complete their project and have their questions answered. The workshop will be held on Saturday, May 15, 2021 and will have two sessions. The Foods Project Session will begin at 1:00p.m. and run until 2:00p.m. There will then be a break for us to sanitize and prepare and then the Clothing Project Session will begin at 2:30p.m. and run until 3:30p.m. Members are welcome to register for just one session or both if they would like.

Participants are required to bring one parent/guardian or their “project helper” (the adult helping them with their project) for the workshop. They are encouraged to bring their project book along with any other parts of their project for which they would like help (i.e. sewing pattern, sewing machine, foods project portfolio, etc.).

We are continuing to follow all Ohio 4-H guidelines for in-person programming:

  • All participants will wear mask for the entirety of the program and while inside the building.
  • Please practice social distancing of at least six feet as much as possible.
  • Please do not bring any additional persons with you (only the participant and their parent/guardian/project helper should attend). We have a limited amount of space and will not have room for extra individuals in the room.
  • Do not attend if you or someone you have been in contact with has symptoms of COVID.

We are limiting each session to eight participants. You can register here. If a session is not available to select, that means it is full. Registration deadline is Wednesday, May 12, 2021.
