Scrolling Fundamentals Blacksmiths Workshop
April 26 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm
We are excited to announce a special course in scroll making by none other than the scroll meister himself, Simon Pankhurst. In a first time festival exclusive, Simon has offered to come down from his forge in Bright and share with us the tips and tricks he uses to make some of the most incredible scrollwork currently being produced in Australia.
This half-day workshop will start off with some theory on scroll making followed by an overview of the tips, tricks and tools Simon uses in his daily practice. Simon will work through where things go wrong with scrolling and what you need to do to obtain symmetry and tension in your finished pieces. Each student will work through scrolling exercises under Simons tutelage. Basic blacksmithing skills and familiarity with working with a coke forge required.
