Such a pleasure to have Hereford College at Bath IRON festival of ironwork in Bath last week. All the students were amazing and supported every part of the event along with their wonderful tutors and staff. Thank you everyone for making it such a success! We literally couldn't have done it without you 😊😚 @herefordanvils @ambroseburne #bathiron2018 #bathiron #herefordanvils #manyhandsmakelightwork #blacksmith #liveforging #festivalofironwork #volunteers #teamwork #teambathiron #lifechanging

Still impressed by the work of Walfird Huber and his recreation of the Notre Dam hinges, so much detail. If you haven't heard of the Devils Blacksmith, it's worth a watch. #bathiron @devilsblacksmith #forged #masterpiece

The Plankbridge signs cleaned up from the weekend. Cast well on the whole especially when considering we were in the centre of Bath! #plankbridge #plankbridgeshepherdshuts #foundry #travelingchimneyfurnace #bath #nhig #bathiron #aluminium #signage

Why @devilsblacksmith ?
.
.
Because people believed the creator of the original hinges for Notre Dame must have been in league with the devil to be able to create ironwork of such incredible beauty, that it was not possible for a mere mortal to archive this!

So after a fairly hefty few months I'm back in Hereford relaxing... a broken van, broken landrover, final major project finished and two festivals in two weeks. Its been intense.

Over the weekend I went to Bath for a forging festival held by @bathiron. What a weekend! The premise if it was to draw attention to heritage metalwork, this is not an area that my work has moved in but one I feel is deeply important. For example, you wouldn’t take your antique side table to a flat pack furniture maker to be fixed so why would you do the same equivalent with your antique metalwork.... most probably because you are unaware that there are people with more suitable skills towards your specific needs. There has been a group set up called National heritage ironwork group NHIG, to help train blacksmith in the fine art of restoration. -
The ornate hinge in this photo was made by Walfrid Huber aka The Devils Blacksmith, videos of the making of this can be found on YouTube 😳 wow! Is the only way I can describe it.. -

This is Andy Thearle, the impetus behind the NHIG BathIRON Festival, who overcame overwhelming odds to find funding for the event and had an unshakable belief in its success! .

Andy @bathiron - Thank you for inviting @herefordanvils to be part of the event from curating exhibition of contemporary work through to designing and supporting the weekend lectures and bringing the #studentcrew we’ve loved it and we are all exhausted but boy , we learnt so much #learningbydoing - THANK YOU

“As a blacksmith, my creative impulse is to express the plastic capabilities of steel,’ he says. ‘The majority of my work is derived from experimentation – the search for new forms and ways of manipulating hot steel. My design process is a constant conversation between material and end product.’
The simple but elegant form of a tuning fork compliments the historic ironwork that punctuates the City of Bath. I enjoy finding the beauty in mundane or utilitarian objects that are otherwise overlooked. In this case the original shape of the tuning fork has been altered through a range of forging processes and techniques, resulting in an abstract form. My work is derived from experimentation in the forge, allowing the plasticity of the material to dictate the final form”

Sam is one of the rising stars in the Artist Blacksmith community, having swept up a clutch of prestigious awards over the past few years. He recently came first in the World Forging Championships at Stia in Italy. ‘

Eight amazing #balustrade panels created by eight Masters and their teams at Bath IRON #festivalofironwork what an incredible feat of #teamwork, #blacksmithskills and strength.

Some more snaps from this weekend running drop on workshops @bathiron on the @westdeancollege stand. Sorry to everyone I didn’t get to see, it was absolutely non stop which is why all my posts are so late. Had a brilliant weekend though and was lucky enough to finally meet @colescastings and @rkartsmith in the flesh! It’s always such a rush to meet people whose work you have long admired and/or who you have connected with through social media. It can be used for good! Thanks to everyone who made the festival possible, particularly to @rose_metalwork and @thomasvkampen for going above and beyond when directing the tiny, hammer wielding, metal kids we had on the workshops. The smithing during the main festival was bleeding marvellous (oh my goodness the work was good) and it was bliss to work amidst the coke smoke and the ringing of hammers on steel once more. 🤓♥️💪🤩

This for me is what dreams are made of. Tiny people with hammers. @rose_metalwork
Teaching two sisters about the beauty of ferrous metal. I am generally not a broody creature or much into kids but this is what it’s all about and this picture makes me go *squeeee* in a most unseemly manner. Another great day @bathiron working on the @westdeancollege stand running workshops.

We didn't get to finish but what a great experience and event to go to for my first ever go at blacksmithing

Amazing few days at @bathiron, learnt so much from some really amazing people, especially watching #thedevilsblacksmithdocumentary .
As a multidisciplinary crafts person I can't wait for an opportunity to learn more about blacksmithing and the possibilities for incorporating new materials in my work.
