As a proud holder of the title “Eminent Master Blacksmith” I create individually designed contemporary hot forged metal work for architectural and sculptural use, made using both modern and time-honoured techniques.
What to expect: Demonstrations of hot forging steel and a slide show will be ongoing for the entire event. Visitors will experience the sights and sounds of a working forge, eighteenth century processes enhanced by an array of 21st century equipment.
Directions: From Springholm on the A75 follow signs to Kirkpatrick Durham. The forge is up an alley 2 doors down from the cross roads on the right hand side.
Accessibility: Easy hard paved access with loads of on street parking.
Recommendation: Kirkpatrick Durham hall – The legendary baking and soup making skills of the village will be available to purchase throughout the whole event.
