Presentation by Joy Fire
Look for Joy Fire to present a joinery video and a talk about her CBA-supported monthlong artist residency in the mountains near Telluride, Colorado. In this residency she connected with nearby blacksmiths, and re-fired up a shop that had been dormant since the passing of its owner. She also worked with the Ah Haa School for the Arts, conducting two workshops.

Hands-On Workshops - Beginner through Intermediate
Thursday, All Day - Tool Making Workshop
Kevin Lauritsen, Ken Kuhn, Beth Homberg
We will focus on the tools you will need for the Friday-Sunday workshop projects. Instructions will include Bill Stone's kit tongs, modifying tong jaws, hot cut chisels, center punches, round punches and more.
Friday Morning - Folding Cooking Trivet
This clever trivet design folds up neatly to pack with your camping gear, but it sturdy enough for big dutch ovens! Includes a movable riveted hinge.
Friday Afternoon - Blacksmiths Tongs
Have you forged proper blacksmiths tongs from square stock - no kit, no twists? This workshop includes making sturdy rivets from bar stock.
Friday Night - Penandular Cloak Pin
How does a braveheart keep his plaid pinned on? With a bold forged iron penandular! The pin works via a sliding collar.
Saturday Morning - Viking Chest Hinges
Historic, but also super useful for a toy box or tool chest. These hinges are a great introduction to connecting two bits of iron in a functional way.
Saturday Afternoon - Braided Iron Bracelets
Make handsome wearable iron jewelry from old scraps! Lots of design riffing to play around with as you learn forge welding skills.
Sunday Morning - Two-arm Hanging Candle Holder
Learn the basics of hot-collaring while forging a useful lighting fixture for your camp or patio.
