Ornamentation of Arms and Armor

July 9 @ 2:00 pm

Tom Latane will give a special presentation on “The Description and Demonstration of Details and Designs Decorating Defensive and Death Dealing Devices” at Castlerock Museum. The program will begin with a tour of the museum’s displays pointing out ornamental techniques such as embossing, gilding, swaging, damascening, inlay, chasing, engraving, and etching and briefly describing how each is done. Then the group will then move to the workbench where the techniques will be explained in greater detail and several will be demonstrated.

Tom Latane is a blacksmith and woodworker with a shop in Pepin, Wisconsin, where he focuses on pre-industrial technology.
