Beading Classes at BK House
Join members of the Black Masking Tradition as they teach beading techniques while sharing the history of this unique New Orleanian cultural practice. Each of the four classes will include different techniques such as basic beading skills, shading/filling, color blending, and using sequins. Guests are encouraged to participate in the complete series to gain a full hands-on experience; however, individual classes can be attended as well. All beading materials will be provided. Feel free to bring a lunch with you and eat as you bead in our beautiful courtyard! In addition to the classes being held outside, guests will be asked to socially distance and required to wear a mask.

Annual Christmas Doll Tea Party
Join us on Saturday, December 12 at the historic Beauregard-Keyes House for our annual Doll Tea Party!
Of course, we'll be doing things a little differently this year. Reserve your spot at either 11:00 AM or 1:30 PM (additional times may be added as required) as we celebrate the holidays by singing, creating Christmas crafts and meeting Santa. As always, children are encouraged to bring their favorite dolls along!
Groups will be limited to 30 people and the event will take place in the courtyard to ensure the safety of all participants.
