CanIron VI Victoria BC

Submitted by Fernie Forge on Sat, July 7, 2007

Vancouver Island Blacksmiths’ Association graciously hosted Canada’s biennial blacksmithing conference, CanIron VI, held at the Luxton Fairgrounds from June 29 – July 2 2007. The event appealed to anyone with an interest in metal-working, either architectural or artistic, and offered something to everyone who attended. Although there were world class blacksmiths demonstrating, the young Canadian blacksmith Daniel Orton stole the show for me. His sculptural talent and skill is outstanding.
