Event Details

Demonstrator – Mark Aspery

Mark’s presentation will be two-fold: to swing a hammer, making a section of the National Curriculum’s Level III Grille, while also chatting about blacksmith education in the USA, which is starting to change quite rapidly. Specifically, Mark plans to forge a quadrant of the grille as well as make some of the tooling. He will look closely at the water leaf and leafinf hammer, or the center collar (forged and fitted) as interest dictates, but probably not both.

* Registration begins at 8am, the demonstration starts at 9am.
* Registration fee:
$15 for members
$20 for non-members,
* Tailgating is encouraged.
* Bring things for Iron—In—the—Hat and Show—and—Tell. Don’t forget to put your name on anything you bring for Show—and—Tell.
* Lunch is on your own. There are several good restaurants in the Camp Verde area.
* Saturday night BBQ. Bring your own meat/fish/veggie burger and adult beverage
* Plenty of space is available for tent camping and limited space for dry RV camping.
* If you aren’t planning on camping, the annual Thunder Valley Motorcycle Rally will be held in Cottonwood on September 20-21, so nearby hotel/motel rooms will be scarce or non—existent. You might try Flagstaff, Prescott, Payson, or Sedona.
* Tailgaters, please consider donating to Iron in the Hat.
