GCBA has adopted the ABANA Forging Fundamentals Controlled Hand Forging Lessons as our guide in teaching the science and art of blacksmithing to our members.
Our experienced members will serve as volunteer instructors for each of the 26 lesson plans, and we hope to teach one lesson at each meeting.
Glen Wesley, a longtime member of the Gulf Coast Blacksmith Association, has been diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS).
As the disease progressed he began having difficulty feeding himself. He asked Sid Gale to help him design a device that would enable him to continue feeding himself without assistance.
They discussed it, made a few sketches and headed out to the shop. Discover how they designed and developed an Assisted Eating Device.
The 2012 Brian Brazeal Tool Workshop in October was a huge success. Watch as he makes tooling and forges a hammer head from round stock.
Ross was the Master Blacksmith at Colonial Williamsburg from 1979 to 2004.
