International Blacksmith Festival 2014 Competitions

International Blacksmith Fest 2014May I introduce myself, my name is Andrew Hall. There is going to be an international blacksmiths festival in Devon, England 13-16th August with Uri Hofi, Brian Brazil and Paul Alan doing demonstrations and other attractions such as iron smelts, aluminium casting, making an Irish gate in 1 day, trade stands and much more.

I am the main organiser for the competitions at the event.

I was hoping that you might be able to help us promote the event within your country.

We would like to invite you or someone from your country to head up a team to represent your country in the team competition event. For details of the competition please see

We are trying to get 8 international teams from around the globe to achieve as divers a range of blacksmith styles and techniques as possible.

We are also wanting to promote the individual and student competitions to as wide an audience as possible, so if you have any way of publicising it within your country, that would be much appreciated.

I would be most grateful if you could let me know if there is any interest in putting together a team for the team completion even if this is negative as this event is invitation only and limited to 8 teams.

I look forward to hearing from you

Kind Regards
