Murder at the ROM Scavenger Hunt

A curator has been murdered and a trail of clues left behind, connected to secrets in the collections. As you solve clues, you’ll begin to piece together a tale of greed, lust, pride and revenge. There are multiple suspects, one victim and you, the sleuths, must crack a cryptic code left in the curator’s appointment book to solve the mystery.

On an Urban Capers Scavenger Hunt, you don’t collect items, but rather answers to tricky and humourous questions. This event is not associated with the ROM. Tickets must be purchased in advance at www.urbancapers.com/murder-at-the-royal-ontario-museum/.

19th Century Pastimes with a 21st Century Twist – Embroidery Workshop

Many pastimes pursued by women in the 19th century are enjoying a resurgence in popularity today. Textile arts such as knitting, ribbon work, needlepoint, and embroidery as well as crafts like paper flower-making and even millinery marvels like fascinators are being explored by a new DIY generation. Indeed, peruse the crafts so meticulously detailed by the doyenne of DIY Martha Stewart and you’ll see regular reference to their roots in the 19th century.

In conjunction with Fashion Victims: The Pleasures and Perils of Dress in the 19th Century, the Museum is pleased to present a series of workshops celebrating those pastimes reflected in the exhibition, while reinventing them with a 21st century twist.

Sunday, November 9th; 1pm – 4pm.

Bata Shoe Museum — 327 Bloor Street West (at St. George)

COST: $60/$55 for BSM members.
