There will be a Dutch Market again at Oranjehof, in Kempton Park on 1st of May 2008. I give a blacksmithing demo there, and a few extra hands are always welcome. We could even set up an extra anvil; my forge is good enough for 2 smiths. One of theguys in our group, Nic Taylor, also a member here is planning a forge in, maybe in april or may, in Pretoria. I will announce it here when the date is set.

Slaan daai ysters!!!

Thanks for the feedback Wim.I'll gladly join the Demo.If you have a problem with heat I can bring along a gas forge (Postbox or Horisontal type).How about a scrolling Demo.Always popular and visually entertaining?

Just finished and delivered a garden table with extensive scrolling in it.So I been there recently and thoroughly done that, with more than my fair share of Murphy's thrown in.

More info closer to the time?

Slaat die yster terwyl hy warm is!

Hello everyone. I'm brand new to this site, only join today. I have been a forging farrier for 17 years. Due to health surcomstances I'm currently the stable manager at Onderstepoort Veterinary Academic Hospital Equine clinic, I hate every minute of it. My big passion is Blacksmithing. Have thought numeris times of making it my profesion, but scared of change, I KNOW "wie nie waag nie sal nie wen nie". At least now I might make some like-minded blacksmith friend to convince me. Hope to hear from you all soon.
