In Colonial times, boys could apprentice at a tinsmith shop where they learned to make funnels, plates, cups, candle holders, lanterns, coffee pots, pails, whistles, bowls, canteens, chandeliers, and even tin \u201cspeaking trumpets,\u201d a Colonial style of megaphone. Children ages \u00a06 to 12 can get a taste of that apprenticeship with a tinsmithing workshop on Saturday, Nov. 17, 11 to 12:30, at the Wilton Historical Society, 224 Danbury road. They will learn to make cookie cutters and then use them in making sugar cookies as a snack. \u00a0 The cost for members is $10 per child, maximum $25 per family; non-members $15 per child, maximum $35 per family.
