Workshop – Create 19th Century Tin-Punch Decorations

Date/Time

Jan 21, 2019
01:00 PM until 03:00 PM

Description

Brighten up your winter days by attending the New Castle Historical Society’s Tin-Punch Decorating Workshop! For children (ages 6 & older) and adults.

Throughout the 1700s and 1800s, tinners, also known as tinsmiths or tinkers, used pieces of iron covered in tin to craft everyday objects such as lanterns, cupboards, footwarmers, colanders, scoops, and cooking utensils. Using hammers or mallets, they would curve and bend the tin. Today, tin-punch is often used in decorative pieces for the home.

Workshop participants will have the opportunity to make several tin-punch decorations to take home.
