Northeast Blacksmiths Association - SPRING MEET 2013
Frank Turley, demonstrator
May 3, 4, 5, 2013
Ashokan Center, 477 Beaverkill Rd., Olivebridge, NY
We are very lucky to have Frank Turley as our demonstrator for the Spring Meet at Ashokan. A key player in the blacksmithing revival that occurred in the late 1960's -early 70's, Frank has taught blacksmithing for over 40 years and is known for his clean, careful forge work and his entertaining character.
As time permits, Frank will demo: a forge welded hinge barrel, combo mandrel/drift for hinge, forge welded rose leaves, hispano-gothic ornament on the diamond (claraboya), portions of aldaba construction, a latch with a curlique fastener, a fire rake with a twisted & fullered handle, with some forge welding thrown in and who knows what else?
Frank will have a limited number of the new edition of his book for sale.
