In this hands on workshop series artisans explore the trades employed by families who lived in the great houses of the Chesapeake, like the Hammond-Harwood House. Second generation silversmith, Henry Hopkins III, has worked on silver for the White House, The Phillips Collection, and Homewood House. In
this two hour long program Mr. Hopkins will take you on a tour of the silver collection of Hammond-Harwood House including the conservation methods he used on an 18th century urn and 19th century butter dish, both original to the house.
