HCH 25th Anniversary Horn Fair

March 4 @ 9:00 am - March 5 @ 5:00 pm

Come and join us for the celebration of our 25th year! This year’s Horn Fair will have all you’ve come to know and more!
For over twenty-five years, the Honorable Company of Horners has dedicated countless hours to the preservation, research and education of the often forgotten skill of horn-working. What’s horn-working you ask? Well, you’re not alone in your quandary! For as long as history has been recorded, animal horn has been a material with many interesting uses. As a natural thermo-plastic, it can be heated and pressed or molded into many useful shapes and our early American forefathers took advantage of these uses!
The Honorable Company of Horners, or HCH, has gone back in time through research and study of original, handmade items and historical documentation to learn the secrets of how horn can be used to make many different and sometimes surprising items.
Since their formation in 1996, the nationwide group has met yearly (except 2021) to come together and share knowledge and discoveries as well as to showcase their learned skills in creating these fascinating tools of the past. The public is always welcome to attend these “Horn Fairs” at no cost and this year in no different! For anyone who is interested in this event, the HCH would like to extend a warm welcome to come and see all of the things they have to offer. From “hands on” workshops and educational seminars to original and contemporary items to view and purchase, there’s something for everyone.
This year’s event will be held at the Altoona Grand Hotel, located at 1 Sheraton Dr, Altoona, PA 16601 on March 4th from 9am-5pm and 5th from 9am-3pm. For more information, please go to their website at www.hornguild.org.
