Sisters in Steel

Sisters in Steel

“Many women have taken up, and excelled at, the craft of blacksmithing, forging hot steel into new forms and objects requiring creative vision and tremendous imagination. With the Sisters in Steel virtual gallery we have chosen to celebrate International Women’s Day 2019 by bringing you works by several of these gifted artists.”

I am delighted to be included as one of the artists on the site here

This course is perfect if you have no idea what you want to make but you would like to have a go at a range of skills. The course covers the full range of basic operations through the making of the poker although some will be practiced at the beginning of the day to ensure a perfect finished piece. This course is run by guest tutor Matthew Hicks, a fully qualified blacksmith based in Wales.

Lucille Scott of Little Duck Forge will be exhibiting a collection of work from hand forged steel and copper sculptures to stunning paintings by guest artists. Lucille loves colour but does not like to paint her work so she works in collaboration with ceramicist Jan Griffiths and a number of glass artists chosen specifically for their styles to complement the various design. To fill the walls of the Pie Factory with colour a number of forge friends will be contributing work to the exhibition.
