New Jersey Makers Day

New Jersey Makers Day

March 21, 2020

10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

The New Jersey State Museum is a proud participating site for New Jersey Makers Day! Meet the Makers! At 2 pm, learn about the history and craft of carving wooden duck decoys, like those on display in Fine Feathered Friends. Experts in decoys, Allen Linkchorst and Bill Ethington will delve into how makers in New Jersey’s coastal and river towns shaped the artistry and style of these hunting tools. Try the Tools! Maybe you’re curious about a Cricut cutting machine, mesmerized by mobiles, a sculptor or a genius with reimagining recycled materials. We’ll have projects to suit everyone’s inner Maker! Get Inspired! NJSM’s art and history galleries are full of creations by New Jersey makers! From a clock mechanism engineered by Peter Hill, the first African American clockmaker, to artist Wanda Gag’s languid kitten, you’ll find New Jersey makers making waves!
