Arik here. I had originally committed to doing the Bakersfield Scottish Games as a period blacksmith, but due to family health issues, I will not be able. It’s a one-day event in Bakersfield on Saturday, April 21st. They had offered me $300 plus the ability to keep whatever I sell. I don’t know if they’d offer you the same thing, but you can ask.
Be advised that it was a Roman period smith they had me locked in for. I don’t know if any of you can do anything like that, but it’s worth asking. Just tell him Arik sent you. Feel free to pass this along to other smiths you know.
i got this email, if you are interested and have the appropriate period correct set up, email me and i will give u the contact info, alex, south ed. email to the south ed link on here.
