“Hide not your talents, they for use were made, What’s a sundial in the shade?”

—Ben Franklin

Unleash your talents and learn to make the sun tell you the time. Explore National Archives records to discover the art and innovation of telling time by the sun as the North American Sundial Society helps to unlock the mysteries of this timeless technology. You will also learn about modern implementation of this timepiece and leave the workshop with the knowledge and ability to make your own dial! Space is limited.
