Lecture: Silversmithing on Long Island

Saturday, September 29 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am Free

Join us at Poquatuck Hall for an exploration of metal working in early America, including a discussion of several Long Island smiths. Silversmith Steve Smithers will discuss the history of silversmithing and the important role the noble metals played in American life from the 17th century to the present day. There will be several examples of early American silver on hand to illustrate the manner in which they were made. Steve will demonstrate and discuss the tools and techniques of the nearly lost art of hand hammered metalwork, and display some of the pieces he made in his workshop in the Berkshires of Massachusetts.
