November Mentoring Center Event

We are adjusting our schedule for November to enable more people to come and avoid conflicting with holiday schedules. The November demonstration is occurring on the 2nd Saturday, rather than our usual 4th Saturday.

This month we have Mark Aspery demonstrating either more of the Western States Curriculum or maybe something else. Instead of having a morning demo and open forge in the afternoon, Mark is going to demonstrate morning and afternoon, and you can be sure he will fill those hours with a huge amount of vital blacksmith education.

Date: Saturday, November 8, 2014
Time: 9AM – 4PM with a lunch break.
Location: NWBA Mentoring Center, 1900 7th Avenue Longview, WA

Cost: $10
Attendees must be current NWBA members due to insurance requirements
