As part of our Boston Buoys project, commissioned artist Bex Simon, along with her partner and fellow blacksmith, David Harris and Nowhere Forge are running two blacksmithing workshops in Boston.
At the first workshop at Fydell House, Bex and David will teach the basic processes of forging and how metal is ‘moved’, along with how the artists combine more modern methods of fabrication to make their pieces. Participants will design their own plant or flower that could be forged into three-dimensional shapes.
This workshop is a great opportunity to understand the design process involved in creating work in a blacksmith forge and participants will have an opportunity to create their design in a mobile forge workshop on Wednesday 30th October.
Free, Drop-in workshop
