When I'm not hunched over a computer writing or over a fire doing coppersmithing, I'm in the garden or hiking/biking with the kids and husband. Or chasing chickens. Or bees. Or runaway cucumbers...

It’s official – the 2022 convergence is a go! For those of you who have wished to learn more about the trade, meet other tinsmiths, coppersmiths, and some blacksmiths who have been doing their craft for many many years, this is your goldmine. From tool swap and pattern swap to workshops, classes, demonstrations, and hands-on experiences, you cannot find a better way to learn a ton and mingle with other like-minded individuals in two days. It’s not terribly expensive ($25/family) to attend the convergence, with another small fee to get the pass into Sauder Village (which is where the event will take place) in Ohio. Typically our space is a park shelter, with much of this happening outside, so you won’t be stuck in a building.

Registration closes on May 24th!

For those that have not been to Sauder Village before, it is a unique place. 

The 235-acre Sauder Village complex includes:
– Living History farm and craft village preserving more than 75 historic structures and nearly 50,000 artifacts
– 98-room Sauder Heritage Inn
– 87-site Sauder Village Campground 
– 350-seat Barn Restaurant 
– Doughbox Bakery

The Historic Village is open Wednesday through Saturday, so if you have not been there before and would like to spend some time looking through the various building and areas, it’s recommended that you arrive a day or two early and use that time to tour the Historic Village. A 1920’s area is now open, which is new.

A final agenda will be compiled as we get closer to the event, however, the usuals will be guaranteed:

Tool Sale and Swap

Tinsmithing / Coppersmithing Pattern Swap. 

Other agenda items currently under consideration:

            Copper Re-tinning

            Man vs Machine Competition

            Handmade Molds
