N.B. Historical Museum offers kids’ workshop on tin punching, March 24

During the colonial era, tin punch was a craft that had both practical and decorative purposes. The doors of cupboards featured tin panels with small holes punched in ornate patterns which allowed for air circulation yet kept out bugs and dust. Lanterns were punched with designs that were illuminated by the candle inside.

The North Berrien Historical Museum is excited to announce The Art of Tin Punch. Participants at this Spring Kids’ Workshop will learn about the use of tin throughout history, the purpose of tin punch, and try their own hand at this colonial craft.

This free program designed for children ages 6–12 will take place on Thursday, March 24 at the North Berrien Historical Museum in Coloma. RSVP is required. There are two opportunities to participate: 10:00 a.m. or 1:00 p.m. Call (269) 468-3330 to reserve your child’s place today!
