??    If you haven’t taken advantage of these wonderful offerings at the Carnegie Center for Art and History in New Albany, then you’ve been missing out! The Carnegie Center Family Fun Workshops have been a great success and these drop-in classes are the perfect way for families to spend Saturday morning together. All ages have a chance to look around the galleries and are led by CCAH staff as they create art related to the exhibits or an upcoming holiday.
    Tin Punch (which is, just as its name implies, a design of holes punched into a tin sheet) is often seen in an early American type of furniture known as a pie safe. The tin punch panels on the doors of the pie safe let air circulate and keep insects away from the pies and bread inside. Tin punch is also used in lanterns even today: the metal prevents the candle from going out, and the holes allow air to escape and light to shine through.
