This morning I had the pleasure of talking with Joe Koches, owner of The Blacksmith Shop here in Ferndale. We talked a lot about the history of blacksmithing, but the main gist of our conversation was about the upcoming Annual Spring Conference of the California Blacksmithing Association, being called "The Old Guys Conference. It will be taking place April 28th through the 30th at the Ferndale Fairgrounds.
The hope is to be able to pass on this skill to the next generation of blacksmiths. There will be a lot of hands-on education from the best in the craft. On Saturday April 30th from 10 till 3 the event will be open to the public to check it out and see how it's done. To find out more, go the their website cbaoldguys.com.
