Coopering: Wooden Canteen

Explore the world of historic trades at Conner Prairie’s annual Arts and Arms Making Workshop as you work alongside some of the nation’s best craftsmen.

Fitting wood together tightly enough to be water tight is a skill that will challenge most woodworkers. Learn the art of coopering with Chuck Andrews. The class will be shown the basic processes of “wet” coopering through the construction of a canteen based upon historic examples. Tools and materials required.
