We Built This: Crafts and Artists

Thursday, March 23
11 am – 12 pm

Join Historic Oak View County Park for We Built This: Crafts and Artists. Learn about one of the most important building materials – plaster – and the different ways it’s been used through history: first through the story of William B. Gould, an enslaved plasterer, and then through the story of Augusta Savage, a famous sculptor during the Harlem Renaissance.

Participants will also learn about the importance of plaster in the Oak View Tenant House, and will finish the program by creating their own plaster handprint keepsake.

Free and open to all ages, recommended for ages 6-12.


The program will begin in the Farm History Center (our visitors center building). Please check in with park staff upon your arrival. Please also let us know if you or anyone in your group requires ADA accommodations. As a courtesy to other participants, the waitlist and the instructor, if you find you have a change in plans and can no longer attend, please oakview@wakegov.com or call 919-250-1013.
