Saturday Sanddancer Scene #14
This week’s contribution from the members of Curly’s Corner Shop Message Board, the busiest online forum in South Shields with over 185,000 posts, comes from Lolita (known as Danet) who resides in Victoria, Australia.
The picture of the blacksmith was taken at the historical Mont De Lancey in Wandin (Yarra Ranges of Victoria).
Courses in Blacksmithing are done here, with accredited certificates. Lolita adds:
“It was a lovely day viewing the whole estate, then to come in from the cold damp raining spring day, into the blacksmith workshop with the fires going, all toasty and warm where I took this photo.”
The Mont De Lancey Blacksmithing Group comprises over 50 enthusiasts who meet every weekend at the authentic Mont De Lancey Blacksmith Shop.The aim is to keep the blacksmithing craft alive by demonstrating and sharing the knowledge and skills of forging with hammer and anvil. The highlight of each year is the annual Australian Blacksmith Convention. The event sees blacksmiths from all over Australia come to Mont De Lancey to display their unique skills and tools for all to enjoy.
