Crossroads: Cutlery and Hand Tools
February 25 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm ESTFree
Join silversmith Steve Smithers as he explores the story of the first tradesmen/artisans who came to Greenfield and the surrounding towns in the late 18th century, which eventually led to the emergence of the great metal industries of our region. Steve will also discuss and demonstrate the tools and techniques of these early makers. Then, get your hands on some locally made tools as long-time museum volunteer Marc Fournier leads a hands-on tool clinic and explores the history of the area’s tool making companies.
