Due to overwhelming requests, we have ramped up the Green Coal portion of this event. We will have 6 fully equipped forging stations open for all attendees to learn on, as well as a professional, experienced smith on duty at all times to teach, explain, or help out as needed.
Steve Parker will still be the featured demonstrator, and Nathan Robertson will demo making one of his excellent hammers.
There is also now a printable PDF version of the registration form on the New England Blacksmiths website, as well as a schedule of events. http://www.newenglandblacksmiths.org/spr..._meets.htm
