It is going to be HOT, so please stay hydrated.Iron in the Hat will commence at approximately 2pm. If you have ANYTHING (does not have to be blacksmith related) you wish to donate, please bring it. If you have been blacksmithing in this heat, please consider bringing some of your items to our Show and Tell Table. It gives others a chance to see what everyone has been working on. Please be prepared to give a short comment and take questions so that others can learn from you how to make your item.The forges be picked-up and will be set-up with several things planned. Some stations will be set-up for individuals wanting to work on their own.
Please wear appropriate clothing if you plan to work at one of the forges. Last month we did an excellent job of keeping the place clean, let’s try and keep Mr. Sid’s place clean also. Ensure you pick up your bottles, cans, and other paraphernalia and put them in the garbage. For non-members, these meetings are open to the public at no charge. It is our wish that you come to a few meetings to see if you like the idea of learning to be a blacksmith. If you do decide you want to learn, we hope you then become a member and continue to come and enjoy. Tools can be checked out (borrowed) for those that do not have their own tools. Again we provide the tools in hopes that you get into blacksmithing and start acquiring your own tools as you develop. Cost of membership is $25 a year paid in January of each year. Anyone joining during the year, the cost is adjusted to the months remaining within the year.
