Copper and Blacksmithing
Audience
Small kids to adults
Articifier of Sundry Artifacts- repairs of all sorts and new products as well. Coppersmithing and
related presentation - "weaving in" the economics and regional differences in application of the
Trade. The effect of the use of clean water and the use of metal utensils and cisterns in the
population was critical to the growth of the nation. Lighting, cooking, plumbing, and
apprenticeships discussed. Most presentations are in a lively context. Early traditional copper
forming ( dovetails and hammer work ) is demonstrated as well as the mid 19th century techniques (
sheet stock). A smith of few years, I am constantly learning. Promise work taken and some in stock
articles are for sale.

Tin and Copper
Audience
All ages - Presentations geared towar
"I am a jolly tinker, I roam from town to town. I can mend your pots and kettles if you only bring
them ‘round!"
As an itinerant tinsmith, or tinker, I present the basics of the trade as well as the history of the prerotary machine tinsmithing era. Using stakes and swedges, I can craft tinware or repair items as
needed. Much of my work at encampments is real repairs for other reenactors. True to the tinker in
me, every presentation is punctuated with some story telling, mischief making, and singing. Thirty
years of teaching experience and a great fondness to share a living history with others makes the
presentations entertaining and informative. Presentations are subject to my schedule as I do continue
to teach multi-subjects in a seventh grade classroom at this time. Modest fees are negotiable.
