On Wednesday, Aug. 8 at 2 p.m., the Louisiana Area Historical Museum will sponsor a short walking tour for kids of all ages to the ASL Pewter Shop, located at 123 South Third Street.
The shop owners, Tom and Pat Hooper, will demonstrate the various ways they create their beautiful and useful pieces of pewter. Their program will include the history of pewter in this country and what the lives would have been like back in colonial days for youth who might have served as apprentices in such a shop.
The Hoopers will demonstrate casting in antique molds and also the technique of spinning to create beautiful works of art.
Participants will then walk back to the museum where refreshments will be served. The event is free of charge.
