|11am | Walk + Talk with Kyle Sandler: For Shakers, By Shakers|
|Join Education Manager Kyle Sandler in the Carriage House where he will discuss “For Shakers, By Shakers: Canterbury Shaker Furniture from the Collection.” This new exhibition explores the breadth of Canterbury Shaker furniture through craftsmanship, color, design, materials, and purpose. Shaker-made furniture has long been considered emblematic of Shaker values. At the same time, these forms served as much-needed tools for communal work and living.|

|From 1pm to 3pm in the Carriage House, visitors may also visit with Shirley Wajda, Curator of Collections. With over 100,000 objects in our permanent collection, Shirley will discuss recent discoveries.|
