We’re halfway through 2018, so I figured it was a good time to do a little review of what your friendly neighborhood Blacksmithing committee is up to:
So far, we’ve held 20 classes this year and we’re just getting started. Induction forge training is happening on a regular basis (next one on the 10th of July) and open forge days are happening about twice each month. What are we making in our project classes? I thought you’d never ask. Here’s a sampling:
All kinds of cool stuff.
We’re happy to welcome a new member, Bill Epps, who’s an amazing smith and is really going to bring a lot to the Space. Bills first class its Monday, July 9, where he’ll teach us how to make tongs like an expert. You should sign up. I did.
We’re happy to report that the long-awaited propane cage is finally in Dallas and we’ll be working to get that installed shortly. A little bird tells me a new small forge is on the way as well.
So come join us. We make stuff out of metal and drink beer when we’re done. It’s a good time and only going to get better going forward. On the horizon, we’ll be rebuilding our current propane forge and looking at some ways to engage a little more with the wider world of blacksmithing in North Texas.
On a personal note, I want to thank our Chair @EthanWestern for taking on the committee and doing a great job. @HankCowdog has been instrumental as well, hopefully Fort Collins gives him back sooner rather than later. I’m not gonna name all the rest of our committee members who show up regularly, but you know who you are, and you’re awesome too.
