Hi Everyone, I am a film maker at university based in London. We are currently making a documentary about Autumnal British Traditions. As i'm sure you all know St Clement is the patron saint of blacksmiths and his feast day is coming up! - November 24th. I've been reading about blacksmithing traditions such as Firing the Anvil / Foundry Day and was wondering if anyone knew of any events take place this year, 2012. A special mention has been made of the day at Finch Foundry in Devon. Has anyone ever been? If so, when was your first time? The idea of the documentary is to explore the past traditions through the present - so any old stories about St Clement's day anyone may have (or be able to ask their older blacksmithing relatives) would be much appreciated. I'd very much appreciate anything anyone has to say! Looking forward to hearing from you, Thanks!
For those in the area or are willing to travel, there is an excellent event scheduled for Labor Day weekend in Dallas. http://www.ntxba.org/events.html?task=view_event&event_id=2 http://forums.armourarchive.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=147142&sid=9004c25ea0c03e9a9411066f1a97d6b0 It looks to be an awesome event. I will be making the trip from Maryland to advance my knowledge in steel repousse and armor construction. I'm looking forward to seeing some of the Western demonstrators and vendors, too. If you didn't just blow the travel budget on ABANA, check out the links and the demonstrators. They are all making top class work.
