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
Jane Ritchie will be hosting the March meeting in her studio. Parking is available in the farm market lot with green fencing, on Fawn St. or on 25th St. Please enter thru the side glass door since the other doors will be locked.
Scott Stewart of Stewart's Forge will be demonstrating a twisted skewer and stake to hold the skewer over the fire. Scott is a very talented blacksmith and this will be one you don't want to miss.
Don't forget Iron in the Hat and to bring food to share. We look forward to seeing you there!
