The 2019 Blacksmiths Festival ‘Forged with Fire’ will bring together blacksmiths from across Australia, Canada and USA to showcase this not-so-lost trade.

The festival features metal forging classes and displays involving coke fires, gas furnaces, hammers, anvils and the display and sale of hand crafted metal art sculptures. There are 'taster' sessions for beginners and a special fire-free kids zone for ages 7-10 to have a go with copper. Live music, a gourmet BBQ (with hand-built smoker), licensed area and barista coffee complete this boutique and unique festival on the banks of the Maribyrnong River.

Head to the Waterside Metal Art Studio on 27 - 28 April and experience the magic that comes from forging red hot metal!
