This is an exhibition of local artists' work including both amateur and professional artists, craftworkers and photographers. Glass Artist wife, Jacqueline and I are privileged to have been invited to be 'Guest Artists' at the exhibition. We will have a full display of our metal and glass work and although we will not be present on a daily basis, we will be at the 'Opening Reception' and also hosting a 'Meet the Artist' session from 2 - 4pm on Sat 4 Aug 2018.

I occasionally give 'one to one' Blacksmithing Taster Sessions at a cost of £200.00 per day. Please contact me for details.

You can view me in action on YouTube.
