Blacksmithing Workshop

Did some coal iron forging for the first time on the weekend at a workshop held by the Ontario Artist Blacksmith Association. I managed to make a bunch of hooks, leaves, a hat holder, half a blade, and a set of tongs.   Though my arm is sore from all the hammering, I feel great, aggression free, and already thinking of ways I can set up my own forge.

Here are a few shots.
