Living History Classes Return to Stuhr

Stuhr Museum is proud to be hosting two classes the weekend of November 4 & 5 taught by our artists from Railroad Town! These classes are:

Blacksmith 1
“Blacksmith 1″ spans two days and will be held for both members and nonmembers of the museum and is designed for those with no metal working experience. During this class, participants will create items using a coal forge as well as become skilled at the tempering process and basic hammer techniques. This class is a unique opportunity to find out how metalworking was done over one hundred years ago and how blacksmithing is still relevant today.

Those who participate will walk away with their own tools they will have created during the class. You must be 14 years or older to participate.

The cost is $120 for members and $130 for nonmembers. The instructor is Randy Dack. For more information, call (308) 385-5316.

Family Tinsmithing
Learn the unique craft of Tinsmithing during this class aimed at children and adults to do together. Participants will make cookie cutters, cups, boxes or a lunch pail. Learn how to handle tools and create your own pieces. This class is specifically designed for couples or a parent/child to take together and is taught by Railroad Town tinsmith Loren Miller.

Participants will leave with several pieces they have created during the course.

The cost is $95 for two (two adults, child/adult team) and $15 per additional child. The nonmember fee is $115. For more information, call (308) 385-5316.
