The next meeting of the Niagara blacksmiths will be Sunday, January 14, 2018, at Andy Chambers’ shop. Coffee and donuts at 8:30 AM and demonstration starting at 9:00 am. All are welcome. The meeting’s theme is leaves, and we will demonstrate two different types. Leaves are great decoration for all kinds of projects, and leaf keepsakes and key rings make great gifts.
Dress warmly, as the shop will be colder inside than out. Members should bring tools and safety equipment (safety glasses, gloves, hearing protection) and should bring tools for work on their own projects.
Interested visitors may attend two regional monthly meetings for free. To work in the shop, they must join the New York State Designer Blacksmiths. There is membership and fee information available at www.nysdb.org/membership. See the website for directions and a map to our meeting location on the Niagara page of the website.
We have a $5 meeting fee for members. Our meetings start with a demo at 9:00 and forge work from 9-12, lunch, a raffle of donated items, and then more hands-on work from 1-3.
