Hi everyone! I am looking for people with intermediate to advanced blacksmithing skills. You may have read in the January edition of the CBA magazine about the workshop done at Burning Man last summer and I have some exciting news to share. We have been invited to run the workshop again at Maker Faire's flagship event in the Bay Area at the San Mateo events Center May 19-21. This three day event is really fun and features hundreds of exhibitors from all types of craft, science and art. Last year over 150,000 people attended the event in San Mateo.
I am in need of a few people to help me with setup and forging in the workshop. This is a great opportunity to interact with the general public sharing our skills and knowledge in the craft of blacksmithing. I can provide accommodations for anyone who is able help out for the whole weekend. If you are interested in helping out I would love to hear from you! I've made this short form for you to fill out or you can send me a message. Thank you!
