Pittsfield: Hancock Shaker Village hosts iron & wood weekend


Blacksmiths and woodworkers will converge on Hancock Shaker Village for the Age of Iron & Wood Weekend on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 6 and 7.

Demonstrations and talks are included in the Village's regular admission.

The weekend also features several fee-based workshops related to woodworking, basket-making, and photography.
