As part of the celebrations of Traveller Pride Week June 18th-26th MTW are delighted to announce they will be officially launching An Tinceir- The Craft of the Tinsmith, a handbook detailing traditional Traveller Tinsmith Skills.
The book is a step by step guide on the tools, skills and products, learners can make themselves using old methods and traditional tools!!!
This handbook will be launched in Trim during the week date and time to be announced.
The launch event will have our restored Barrel Top Wagon pitched up in a faithfully recreated roadside scene of a Traveller encampment from the 1950’s( the 1950’s is acknowledged as the most recent hay-day of Traveller Tinsmith Skills)
The camp will also include a traditional tent, campfire, Travellers in period dress music and of course a working Tinsmith putting some of the lessons from the book into practice.
