About this Event

All levels of tinsmithing will be taught during the same week.

TIN I

Introduction to the art of tinning designed to provide a basic working knowledge of late 18th and early 19th century tinning tools, construction techniques and pattern layout. The history of American tinning is covered in an illustrated talk. Students construct 9 reproduction items including a one-pint mug, a wall sconce, and a coffee pot. All projects are based on traditional designs, using period tools and methods. All tools and tin are supplied for the workshop.

Students have access to a large collection of tin sconces, lanterns, chandeliers, candle sticks, crooked spout coffee pots, roasting kitchens, etc., which they are invited to examine, measure and copy with the expert help of the instructor.

TIN III, 18th-CENTURY TINSMITHING
