Hands to Work: Shaker-Inspired Workshops and Events

For the Shakers, work, worship and daily life were inseparable. Their motto, “Hands to Work, Hearts to God,” summarized their belief that the time in a human life is a gift from God and how that time is used is, in return, a gift to God.

Canterbury Shaker Village offers opportunities throughout the year to put your “Hands to Work” and explore the Shakers’ 200-year legacy of entrepreneurship, innovation and simple living and to rethink these traditions for contemporary life.
