FESTIVAL OF IRONWORK in the centre of Bath, Somerset – a World Heritage City
June 14, 2018 @ 10:00 am - June 17, 2018 @ 6:00 pm
At a time when the ancient craft of the blacksmith has almost faded from view, the National Heritage Ironwork Group will be staging a spectacular festival of ironwork in Parade Gardens, Bath from 14th – 17th June 2018
FOUR DAYS OF BLACKSMITHING ACTION
This 4-day event offers a unique opportunity to witness Master smiths at work as they forge a brand new balustrade for the Parade Gardens bandstand. Join us to watch dynamic demonstrations, inspiring talks and masterclasses, all celebrating the skills of the master craftsmen, and rekindling interest in this rapidly diminishing heritage craft. There will be a fantastic opportunity for children and adults to have a go at forging too.
