By the time Keene was becoming a permanent settlement in the mid-18th century, many different community members were working with wood to meet the daily needs of their households and the town. On May 22nd, three craftspeople will be at the Wyman Tavern to introduce the general public to traditional woodworking arts.
Meg Kupiec will demonstrate chair caning and splint-woven seating. Wayne Miller will demonstrate wood carving and planing. And, Kathy Schillemat will demonstrate how to make a wattle fence using locally harvested tree saplings. Wattle fencing has been used as an enclosure for gardens and livestock from ancient times.
