Pittsfield: Shaker woodworking class for beginners
Hancock Shaker Village will hold a beginner's woodworking class from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, June 29. Participants will craft a Shaker-style pine carrier based on a piece from the Village's collections.
The form, which originated at the Shaker Village in Mount Lebanon, N.Y., in the 1840s, resembles a hand-held toolbox with a built-in handle on top.
The fee for the class is $110, $99 members, plus $30 for materials. Advance registration is required. Purchase tickets online at hancockshakervillage.org or call 413-443-0188.
