"Creative Fire"- Beginners Blacksmithing Experience

When:
Every day until Sun 30 Dec 2018
Details:
Unleash your inner creative fire, work off some energy and learn an ancient art under guidance from an experienced artisan at Talisman Gallery this festive season.

Burgeoning metal artists will create their own piece of art in the 30-minute blacksmithing session on the anvil by beating red hot steel into the shape of a fire poker, decorative wall hook or small sculpture. Extra decorative elements such as crystals may also be added.

Talisman Gallery metal artist Ron Fitzpatrick of Blackheath said "You remove the red hot steel from the fire, bringing it to the anvil you begin to beat the hot metal. You watch as it changes shape, yielding under the blows. Working quickly before it cools, you wrap it around a form into a spiral shape. Before you know it you have created your first piece of metal art! So put your phone down and come and make something!''

A great family activity available to anyone aged 13 years and older, the Creative Fire experience will be held daily from December 27 to 30.

Cost: fire poker $35, decorative wall hook $40, sculpture $65, additional elements costs vary.

Visitors to Talisman Gallery can browse the collection of large high-end pieces along with signature metal art mirrors, small affordable sculptures and candleholders and an extensive collection of imported jewellery and new crystal pieces.

The gallery is open from 10am to 5pm Tuesday to Sunday.

Bookings can be made by calling Ron or through his Facebook page (link below), where you can also find additional information.
