The Tinsmith (in-classroom)

We bring the museum to you! Geared for grades 3-12 and adult groups. 

In this inquiry-based program, our Genesee Country tinsmith brings some of his shiny wares as well as the tools he uses to make them so your students can see both process and result. Students are challenged to figure out how this technology was employed to solve specific problems and meet particular needs. The tinsmith also shares insights into his role in early American economies and compares it to that of his 21st-century counterpart – the hardware store. For an additional fee, a tin ornament can be made by each participant.
