Peter Blum - Tinsmith
Peter Blum, a third generation tinsmith, began working with his grandfather and father at age 15 to learn this family trade. Their work is prevalent in the Moravian settlement at Old Salem. For many years, Peter has demonstrated his craft at the NC State Fair's Village of Yesteryear. The governor has presented Peter with The Order of the Long Leaf Pine. This master craftsman will demonstrate his talent and might share a story or two!
Betty Montgomery will assist Peter Blum and help young visitors craft a tin ornament to take home.
