Central Virginia Blacksmith Guild

Schedule

 


Monthly Meetings

Monthly Meetings are usually the second Saturday of each month from 9 AM to 1 PM.

Monthly Meetings are the high points of the Guild's existence. Lunch is usually served and some type demonstration is usually scheduled. Although they may be provided, bring eye protection and ear plugs (for yourself and others you bring) to these events.

You may want to bring gloves, your favorite hammer and a pair of tongs. There may be an opportunity for you to be involved in practice and learning or you might be called upon to do a demo or assist in one.

Charge:
Bring something for Iron in the Hat (IITH), buy some IITH tickets, and/or bring a dish for lunch. All these things support the Guild.

Meeting Schedule:

June 14 meeting at Bruce Manson's place.
