September 20-22, 2019: Fall Hammer-In at the Ashokan Center featuring Doug Wilson as demonstrator in a dual meet with the New England Bladesmith Guild.
The title for Douglas’ weekend demo is: Contemporary Design Rooted in Traditional Forging Processes The demo will include a segment on forge-welding which he calls: 'No Myth, No Mystery': Presenting a variety of forge-welding setups & scarfing for a variety of welds. Doug’s demo: “We will explore design concepts which utilize traditional forging and joinery processes in contemporary ways via drawing. I will forge simple straightforward elements from flat, round, and square bar stock. These elements will then be joined together using traditional processes: rivets, tenons, forge welding, and collaring. Douglas was our demonstrator many years ago. It was an interesting and memorable demo. Don’t miss this chance to be inspired by Doug’s thoughtful and intuitive approach to forged ironwork.
