February 2020 Hammerin/Potluck
February 29 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Come to forge, visit, and eat. Stay for a few hours or the full day.
The usual safety gear is required if you’ll be hanging out in the forge area: safety glasses, natural-fiber clothing, leather shoes or boots. Hearing protection is recommended.
Bring tools and metal for your project, something for the potluck if you’d like, and chip in for the cost of the coal.
We’ll be specifically inviting the people who just completed the beginners classes (who might not be Guild members yet) to try out their new skills, make a project, and meet some of our wonderful group of metalsmiths. Mentors (you know who you are) are encouraged to attend, as well as those of you just missing the forge and fellowship during these winter months. We’ll try to keep the use of the forges rotating.
If you haven’t been to the School of Horseshoeing, see the map at right. The blacksmith shop is heated and has 8 coal forging stations. There’s a classroom next to it with a refrigerator, microwave, tables and chairs that we’ll use for the food setup.
