Last week was a whirlwind, and I did promise that I’d try and post some bits and pieces in chronological order. I’ll try to recap a little bit here as a fire through a bunch of these photos for you!
Last Tuesday I went up north to Kentucky to spend the day with blacksmith Dan Estep who is building a blacksmith shop and an apprenticeship program in the lovely little town of Hindman.
Dan and I spent about six hours together and I learned an incredible amount in a short period of time. Here we tempered a draw knife he was finishing up, but I did some forge welding for the first time, learned a new style of building decorative leaves in addition to a variety of other skills while I was there. I look forward to showing you more of Hindman and what it has to offer in the coming months when I return for another visit!
