Hartford, CT – Join the CT Historical Society  on Saturday, June 2 from 10am- 3pm for a day of free demonstrations and activities for both families and adults celebrating the continuing tradition of making things by hand. Woodworkers featured in our current exhibit, A Tradition of Craft: Current Works by the Society of American Period Furniture Makers, will demonstrate age-old techniques and hand tools, with the chance to try them out. Several other traditional crafts, such as basket-weaving, black-smithing, and hand-spinning, will also be on view, and a kids’ area will offer a variety of hands-on projects to make and take home. Demonstrations will be set up on the museum grounds (weather permitting) or indoors in case of rain. Food will be available for sale, and the museum galleries will be open and FREE all day. For more information, call (860) 236-5621 x209 or email Mary Muller.
