Coopering Workshop @ Ross Farm

Make a bucket! Basic coopering workshop at Ross Farm Museum!

Description: Come to Ross Farm Museum to learn about basic coopering and make your own bucket. Taught by Ross Farm coopers, students will begin in the woods, identifying the types and qualities of trees to make barrel and bucket staves. They will then see the process of milling the lumber into bucket components and be taught how to joint and fabricate their own bucket using hand tools. It should be a fun learning event that takes you from forest to product.
