A Ringing of the Anvil Thank you!

A big thank you to everyone who helped to make Canada's biennial blacksmithing conference, CanIron VI, held at the Luxton Fairgrounds, such a resounding success. The four-day event appealed to anyone with an interest in metal-working, either architectural or artistic, and offered something to everyone who attended.

Thank you to the featured demonstrators:
Richard Bent - FWCB, Paul Thorne, Jake James, Daniel Orton, Cairn Cunnane, Al Bakke, Renato Muskovic, Tony Austin, and Doug Newell. An additional thank you to Richard Bent for judging the blacksmithing competition to the standards of the Worshipful Company of Blacksmiths of London, England (est. 1325).
