Unread post by Darryl Ponder » Wed Apr 03, 2013 8:51 pm

All metalworkers are welcome! Feel free to come attend the Guild meeting even if you are not a Guild member!

From the April issue of The Forum ... 3forum.pdf

Be sure to set your calendar so that Wednesday, April 10 is the day you attend
The Guild of Metalsmith’s membership meeting. The folks at Arms & Armor will
be giving an overview on their company, what they make, and how they make it.
Their workshop will be the scene, located at 1101 Stinson Blvd in Minneapolis.
TGoM will meet there at 6:30 pm for potluck dinner, with the presentation by
Arms & Armor staff following a quick business meeting. This should prove to be a
fascinating evening. You’re likely to see items like the two pictured on this page
and how they’re created. But don’t forget to bring your own show n tell items too!
Arms & Armor, founded in 1982, crafts a variety of items in the Medieval and
Renaissance styles. It was founded by Chris Poor, a former professional jouster
with a life-long interest in weapons and armor. Chris’s first-hand experience and
scholarly research will provide us with a working knowledge of weapons and armor.
Visit their website:
There is a parking lot behind the building. Parking as also available at “Metler Auto” across the street and on the street as well.
NOTE: If you have questions about this meeting, please contact the meeting champion, Marty Hicks, at 651-402-0899. Email:
