SOLD OUT!! Tool Talk

November 14, 2017

If you missed the chance to buy tickets to this rare program and you'd like us to run it again, let us know at 

The Shaker Museum | Mount Lebanon is deeply rooted in Shaker trades and the tools used by various tradesmen. Our tool talk this summer will look at the formation of the Museum’s tool collection as envisioned and developed by its founder, John S. Williams, Sr., specific tools of some common Shaker trades, several unique Shaker tools, and tools associated with particular Shaker craftsmen and craftswomen. The presentation will include a short illustrated lecture, an examination of the Shaker tool installation currently on view, and some time for questions and discussion.
