Rocky Forge Blacksmith Guild meetings are usually held on the second Saturday of each month. Meetings generally begin at 8:30 AM with coffee and social time,
with a business meeting at 9 AM, frequently followed by blacksmithing demonstrations, and then forge time for everyone. We have taken to
holding a potluck lunch sometime around noon. During the winter, we occasionally arrange for blacksmithing-related meetings, such as visiting welding
shops and steel plants. Alternately, we may arrange for a demonstration of some interesting technique, method, or equipment.
Most meetings are held at the home of one of our members. Contact us for directions and information.
