Busy, busy, busy

I was completely shocked to see that I haven't blogged here in almost a year. Shame on me.

The blacksmith has been so busy, and time just got away from me. Of course you can always catch up with him on Face Book too.

April 25th, three Master blacksmiths from the Missouri Folk Arts Traditional Arts Apprentice Program demonstrated at Lohman's landing, in Jefferson City Missouri.

 Bernard is set up and ready to demo.

 It was a great setting along the Missouri River and under some beautiful big trees.

 Bob Alexander and and his apprentice Mark prepare their forge.

Bernard and Pat McCarty do some double striking. It's always a crowd pleaser.

 The blacksmith even made the billboard!

Despite the off and on rain, it was still a fun afternoon, with a steady crowd.

KBIA radio interviewed the blacksmith several weeks prior. Here is a link to it. Click here

I admire those that participate in, and share the traditional crafts of our ancestors. Hopefully, it will never become a lost art.
