Woodturning, Blacksmithing Demonstrations at Wilson Museum
August 4 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 2:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until Wednesday, August 25, 2021
The Wilson Museum in Castine is offering woodturning and blacksmithing demonstrations on Sundays and Wednesdays in July and August.
While woodturning and blacksmithing demonstrations will continue, The Village Blacksmith will look different this year due to the passing of our longtime friend and blacksmith, Joe Meltreder, this past December. For years, Joe enriched the lives of the museum staff and visitors with his contagious smile, sense of humor and blacksmithing talent.
Visitors and staff alike will remember and honor Joe’s impact on and contributions to the museum community with the continuation of blacksmithing demonstrations by a variety of guest smiths. Some of these smiths worked for us when Hoyt Hutchins first built our smithy and we are excited to have them back for a day or two: George Brace from the Ricker Blacksmith Shop in Cherryfield and Peter Ross, who later worked at Williamsburg. These talented men will be joined by others in the local area. More information will be available as the summer plans unfold.
