Talk about a great class!
Director Jim was lucky enough to get a “sneak preview” of the upcoming class that will be taught by Walt Fleming at the Adirondack Folk School (Tinsmithing for Beginners on three days in July. July 2, July 6 and July 9) These one-day classes are limited to only 4 students. The instructor, is a master tinsmith with years of experience and patience. Not only will the students leave with a beautiful candle holder and sconce, but a wonderful education into the history of tinsmithing in early American. Walt’s shop, where the classes are taught in Ballston Lake, are filled with every conceivable piece of tinware that he has made or collected. A museum in itself and worth the tuition.
This is a class for anyone with no experience required.
