Nail Making - Chris Turton

Date: 27th May 2017

27th May         Nail Making with Christopher Turton  - Christopher is a regular demonstrator at the Black Country Museum and will be at the Yard showing how nails were made by the local blacksmith. Before the advent of mass production the blacksmith was a very important person in village life making a wide range of metal objects including nails. The joints in many of the early wooden buildings were pinned  with wooden dowels but nails were also used and these were made by the blacksmith. Come along and talk to Christopher about the materials and methods used.
