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
Sunday, April 15 at 1 PM - 4 PM
801 Butler St, Unit 19, Chesapeake, VA 23323-3418, United States
The April meeting will be at Don Robertson's shop in Chesapeake. Don will make a hammer for the demonstration using his air hammer to keep the demo to a reasonable time frame. These hammers can be made at home with a little more time and effort.
As always, blacksmith's like to eat so be sure to bring a side dish to share and bring something for your Iron in the Hat contribution. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
2nd Wednesday each month is Open Forge, 6PM to 9PM at Don Robertson's Shop
