Townships Traditional Crafts
This exhibit highlights the diversity of handicrafts produced in our area, going back to pioneer days, and including the work of indigenous inhabitants. Tools were also often hand-crafted. Many of these artefacts have survived a century or longer. Some crafts that were originally essential for everyday life have developed into hobbies nowadays. Modern tools and equipment can produce objects more easily and rapidly, but people still enjoy creating unique ones by hand.
