Blacksmith, Weaver, Broom Maker Demonstrations at Howell Living History Farm

October 22, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

The sights and sounds of trades that were once essential in rural communities will come to life at Howell Living History Farm on Saturday, Oct. 22, when a basket weaver, broom maker and blacksmith put their tools and skills to work. The demonstrations can be seen at the farm’s wagon house and forge from 11 a.m. to
3 p.m. Visitors are encouraged to meet and talk with the tradesmen and tradeswomen and see how their finished products are used on the farm. At the forge, visitors ages 8 and older can try their hand at hammering steel and cranking the blower under the guidance
of blacksmith Mike Erdie.

A children’s craft program, “Broom Corn Pot Scrubber,” will be held in the visitor center barn from 1 to 3 p.m. Cost is $3. Groups of five or more must register for the craft program.
