About the Instructor
Fabrice Siaux has been a school teacher in the division since 2012 and has been tinsmithing just as long. Since historical tinsmithing is not as common as it used to be, Fabrice had to learn all the techniques using historical references and documents. He enjoys tinsmithing as well as teaching it because it is a lost trade that has been made obsolete by machines and feels as though it should be preserved. Students can expect to take home a piece of historical tinware using the same techniques and tools once used by tinsmiths 200 years ago.
