Tidewater Blacksmith's Guild, Inc. Mission Statement
The Tidewater Blacksmith's Guild is dedicated to preserving the craft of blacksmithing and to increasing public awareness of the history of blacksmithing while at the same time demonstrating that in this automated machine world, things hand made still exist and remain objects of art. The Tidewater Blacksmith's Guild is a local member organization charted under the Artist-Blacksmith's Association of North America Inc. (ABANA), a non-profit organization.
Board of Directors Meetings will be the Second Thursday of each month
Our Next Meeting
Sat. Apr. 6 from 9-5 and Sun. Apr. 7 from 12-5
The normal meeting date of the 3rd Sunday falls on Easter this year so the Daffodil Festival in Gloucester, Va. will be considered our April meeting. This will be held Sat. Apr. 6 from 9-5 and Sun. Apr. 7 from 12-5. Please go to daffodilfestivalva.org for info regarding the event. Also be sure to stop by The Village Blacksmith to visit George Cramer and a few other TBG members at 6641 Gloucester St. Since this is not a formal meeting there will be no meal supplied or iron in the hat raffle. This is a great event with plenty to do and see for the whole family!
