This History of Tinsmithing

February 24 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Free

A tinsmith, sometimes known as a whitesmith, tinner, tinker, tinman, or tinplate worker is a person who makes and repairs things made of tinware or light metal. The tinsmith learned his trade, like many other artisans, by serving an apprenticeship of 4 to 6 years with a master tinsmith. Among the things they made were cake stamps (cookie cutters), pill boxes, and other simple items. There will be a display of items made through the ages and books about tin things you can make at home with simple tools. A demonstration on how to make a tin punch lantern will take place at 1 p.m.

Meet at the Discovery Center.  This free event is open to all ages, registration is not required.
