Join the Publick Armoury Tin Shop in exploring the unique properties of tin-plated iron by creating a practical lighting device. Commonly known as a cellar-stick, this simple candle holder offers a useful beginner’s project to develop the fundamental skills and knowledge that all tin-plate workers, both historical and modern, need to learn to be competent. Bending, cutting, and soldering are performed in this quick project, providing the maker with a functional candleholder and invaluable life skills to take home and enjoy. Limit of 9 participants. Minimum age is 10.
