Designed for those who want a deeper understanding of the everyday objects that help tell the story of life during the 18th century, this workshop is a part of a series examining the material culture of the 18th century as it relates to Fort Ticonderoga’s role in the 18th-century contests for North America.
The February 26th workshop features William Hettinger, an expert on 18th-century jewelry- Jenna Schnitzer, who will speak on 18th-century women’s clothing- Chris Fox, the Fort’s Curator of Collections, whose presentation focuses on 18th-century lighting devices- and Eric Schnitzer, from Saratoga National Historical Park, who will discuss the use of artworks when researching 18th-century material culture. The workshop concludes with an opportunity for participants to examine examples of 18th-century artifacts with the panel of experts.
The cost for the day-long workshop is $35 and includes morning refreshments and lunch. To register, contact Rich Strum at 518-585-6370 or you can download a registration form at
