TOOLS & TRADES SAMPLER WORKSHOPS
- TOOLS & TRADES SAMPLER WORKSHOPS OFFER
EXCEPTIONAL LEARNING ADVENTURE
For a unique encounter with living history this summer come to the
EARLY AMERICAN INDUSTRIES ASSOCIATION TRADES
& THEIR TOOLS WORKSHOP SAMPLER at EASTFIELD
VILLAGE, N.Y., MONDAY, JULY 14 thru FRIDAY, JULY 18
In this remarkable program master tradesmen, who are also
experienced teachers, conduct a series of one day workshops in a
total of eleven traditional trades. The schedule of workshops
include TINSMITHING, COOPERING, SURVEYING, SPLINT
BASKET MAKING, BLACKSMITHING, GRANITE CUTTING,
LETTERPRESS PRINTING, CABINET MAKING, HISTORIC
PANELING, WOODEN MOULDINGS, AND SASHMAKING.
While you obviously cannot master a trade in one day, these workshops
emphasize a hands on approach in which you take up the tools and
materials to produce something during the course of the woodshop,
most often an item to take home.

This ties in with our thread on Sutlers and Craftsmen
For the good of the hobby and the 1812 time period in particular
"Living History" is defined as:
... any simulation of past people, processes and/or events
that enables both visitors and interpreters to interact in a
three-dimensional, multi-sensory, historical environment.
