The Tin and Copper Convergence is an annual 'converging' or 'coming together' of Coppersmiths, Tinkers, and Tinsmiths from every walk of life and skill level, to share their knowledge and expertise in the Historical trades of related metal working.
This year the convergence was held at Fort Boonesborough.In addition to the seminars there were some ‘hands on’ areas and one of the highlights of the conference was the Exhibition in the Museum of tin items from the William Calk Collection. The items were on loan from the Kentucky Historical Society. Calk was an early settler who made a trip to Boonesborough in 1775 and kept a journal of his trip. (The Fort Boonesborough Foundation sells a printed and annotated copy of his journal. Learn more...)
