Come see demos by Caitlin Morris of Ms. Caitlin’s School of Blacksmithing, as well as Metalsmith and Maskmaker, Kest Schwartzman. Don’t miss this opportunity to peek into downtown’s only blacksmithing school, and pick up some gifts for the holidays. If you’re looking for a truly unique present for a local friend, Ms. Caitlin’s School will be selling gift certificates for classes, and if you need something more shippable, both smiths will have their handmade work for sale. For those not looking specifically to shop, there will be blacksmithing and coppersmithing demos throughout the day, as well as inevitable short dance parties, because that’s how these two do things.
