We are currently planning the Conference and putting together a slate of demonstrators that will reflect the theme of the conference:
Joinery: Come Make Connections
We are in discussions with smiths from South
America, the UK, and Europe, as well as the US, including the Colonial Williamsburg Smiths, and the Patient Order of Meticulous Metalsmiths. We are striving to have a variety of demonstrators covering a wide range of styles using tools from hand hammers to forging presses and power hammers; an iron smelt; and copper- and silver- smiths. Our hope is that the only attendees we might not be able to please will be those that want to see everything! As demonstrator details are confirmed, their demonstrations will be posted on the ABANA website:
