Blacksmith Collective will take place on May 11, 2019, and offers an interactive look at the trade and artistry of blacksmithing in New England from the 17th to 21st century.
The day will be filled with demonstrations by visiting smiths and inside Storrowton's Clark Blacksmith shop. Visitors will be able to talk with smiths about their tools, techniques and traditions as they work at their forges.
The event is suitable for all ages -- adults will get a practical view of the art and craftsmanship of the trade while the children’s activity area provides a hands-on look at the tools and toys made by blacksmiths as well as a clay molding activity that teaches the science behind molding metal.
The Shops at Storrowton will be open and smiths will have items for sale. Visitors can also purchase tickets for a raffle of hand-forged items, with 100% of proceeds to benefit Storrowton Museum’s education programs.
