Hey guys, I've been asked to "get the word out on the internet" about the Calgary Blacksmith Club. Several of the members have been involved since the early 90s and are professional Smiths. There are also several noobs (like me), making for a nice mix. This month's meeting will be at Pioneer Acres just outside Irracana (about 35 minutes from the North end of Calgary). The Blacksmith shop at PA is set up as historical as possible with coal forges, lineshaft equipment and 100s of antique tools. Even without the forges going, its a very neat shop, but, we typically get some time on the anvils building skills and sharing techniques before wrapping up around 2PM. If you have any questions, shoot me a PM, or post here. Thanks, Alg
Hi there, i am appealing for some help. I am a blacksmith and fabricator from Victoria. I am in Calgary for about a week to visit my mother who just got out of the hospital. I am looking for a spot where I could build a simple railing for her steps. It is simple fabrication and does not involve any blacksmithing as their strada will not allow anything different. If any one out there is willing to let me use their shop I would be happy to pay a fee and I could possibly share some of my knowledge. I have 30 years of fabrication experience and over 20 years of blacksmithing experience. Here is my site if you want to check it out Crescentmoonforge
Hi there. Some people have tried asking about coal in southern alberta. I know this because I have come across threads while searching for myself. You will need to get in contact with Amy at the stampede grounds agricultural centre. $20 a bag but there are some limitations as to how much or little one can procure at one time. Anyways. This is what I have found. Amy Osborn Agriculture Programming Coordinator Calgary Stampede T 403.261.9159 F 403.262.3067 [email protected]
