Museum of Work & Culture Celebrates Birthday of Blackstone Valley’s American Girl


Two baking classes on September 17!

The Museum of Work & Culture is excited to once again celebrate the birthday of the Blackstone Valley’s American Girl, Grace Thomas, whose passions include French, baking, and her bulldog Bonbon.

On September 17, in honor of Grace’s birthday train ride through the Valley, the Museum will be hosting programming and activities inspired by her story.

At 10am and 1:30pm, the Museum will offer a Baking Class in conjunction with Wright’s Dairy Farm & Bakery. Bakers will receive a chef’s hat and pink apron and, after a demonstration by Wright’s Bakery’s pastry chef, will fill and glaze éclairs, with all ingredients and baking materials provided by Wright’s. Participants will also take part in a French Treasure Hunt and create a personal travel log of their visit. Admission is $30 per baker, which includes the cost of one accompanying-adult admission. Tickets for additional bakers are available for $22.

The French Treasure Hunt will be available all day, with an admission price of $10.

Tickets are available for purchase at
