This is our first ever open blacksmithing event, and we want everyone to come check it out!

In partnership with members of the Blacksmiths of Kentucky facebook group, and with help from our perennial blacksmith instructor Jeff Farmer, we're hosting a Hammer In event. This is a chance for smiths of all skill levels to come out, meeting other makers, hammer some iron, and enrich the blacksmithing community of Eastern Kentucky.
  • Jeff plans on leading demos during the day, and we encourage others to do the same. If you want to let us know in advance what you'd like to show off, feel free to reach out to Jess or Jeff
  • Even if you don't want to hammer, spectating is allowed, and encouraged!
  • Participation is free
  • Bringing a dish for our potluck lunch is highly encouraged. We'll do our best to get a food sponsor as well.
  • "Iron in the Hat" - bring something you want to raffle off, buy raffle tickets for a dollar. Winners will be drawn in the afternoon, and the proceeds will be used to help fund further blacksmithing events at the Berea Makerspace! Max of 500 raffle tickets will be distributed at $1 each.
Events like this our made possible through a grant from the Appalachian Fund, providing us the means to provide accessible training in the traditional crafts of blacksmithing and hand tool woodworking. Stuart Mullins of Blacksmiths of Kentucky facebook group has also been a huge resource in helping us set up this event, and why we want to make sure to namedrop them here.

To foster a diverse community of doers, artists, entrepreneurs, life-long learners, and new makers, who can explore, create, and gain new skills in a shared space.
