More about Sisters In Steel Schedule

I’m hard at work putting together my visual CV.  Dug up a few blasts from the pasts.  I even found the drawing of Tom Staley at his anvil in the Melrose forge.   An unexpected challenge for my afternoon talk – how does one show off the basic blacksmithing moves and keep it interesting?

Anyway, here’s the Blacksmithing schedule.   You can get more details at the Kings Theatre event site.
