Ceylon Forge Progress

Well I’m not ready to move any equipment in yet but there has been a lot of progress on the building over the past year. Here are the highlights:

The Frame is all up and all brackets/braces are installed. img_4462


To preserve the frame, I coated the exterior with Pine Tar from Sage Restoration.




The Roof Deck is all on and waiting for the waterproofing.IMG_4513

And most recently, the cordwood infill has been started!



Another Glassblowing/Blacksmithing Workshop


October 13 + 14

You’ll be playing with fire to create your very own garden ornament in this unique and exciting two day workshop where you learn both glassblowing and blacksmithing!

DAY ONE (3 hours):

Come and learn glassblowing with Kate Civiero at Infinite Glassworks in Eugenia.  Stretch, twist, blow and shape colourful molten glass to create an orb which will be the top of your garden ornament.

DAY TWO (3 hours):

Visit the studio of artisan blacksmith Dano Harris in Markdale where you will learn to hammer, twist, curl and weld steel into a unique stem which will hold the glass orb you made in day one.  At the end of day two you will assemble the garden ornament and take home your finished project.
