DEMONSTRATIONS | SHOWS | EVENTS
It is great to have the chance to demonstrate a craft such as that of a Blacksmith!
I am Forging live for the public at various occasions throughout Cornwall.
With the Cornish Blacksmith Collective, that is a get together of the local full time Smiths and Hobbyists,
I have been to Shows, Festivals and Events like The Royal Cornwall Show, The little Big Gig, Stithians Steam Fair and more.
It is fun to talk to interested people and to bring the craft closer

The West of England Steam Engine Society Rally
Choo choo choose this event if you have a hankering for seeing a load of steam engines in action across a whole weekend in Cornwall. The West of England Steam Engine Society Rally 2023 is expected to be a jam-packed celebration of all things vintage and steam-powered. And then some.
Gone Wild Festival
The family-friendly Gone Wild Festival is set to return to Powderham Castle near Exeter for the third time in August. Adventurer Bear Grylls, who co-founded the event, said it will be a long weekend of “camping, adventure, wellness and dancing.”
The Cornish Blacksmith collective will be part of the event this year and give you the chance to have a go on one of the Anvils!
