Jamestown Settlement
When the English colonists arrived in Virginia, they found a land where trees were an abundant natural resource, making Virginia a perfect place to practice the art of woodworking. The Powhatan had an established tradition of woodworking with a variety of tools, as did the Angolans who were brought to Virginia in 1619. Join us Thursday for “the Countrey yeelded abundance of Wood,” a three-part series live from Jamestown Settlement to explore the tools, materials and techniques of woodworking among the three cultures that came together in early Virginia.
