Demonstrations Tent

About this event

Observe the makers in action. From whittling to forging, watch as wooden ornaments are whittled or steel knives are forged–at the live screen-printing demonstration.

Phil Gilson, possibly the last colonial American-style glassblower, will be on hand to explain the process of his craft with a broad display of his traditional designs used in many historic homes.

Be sure to check out his special flasks, pitchers and suncatchers made specifically for Winterfest.
