NWBA’s Mentoring Center Update

NWBA’s monthly demonstration and open forge at our Mentoring Center in Longview, WA have been amazing.

Initially it was called our clubhouse, but since it is so much more than a place to hang out with one another it was decided to rename it. The main emphasis of having a permanent home for our hands-on equipment is to have an available space for teaching and sharing, to mentor one another in the art and craft of blacksmithing, throughout the whole year. Thus, the name Mentoring Center was chosen.

On the fourth Saturday of each month the Mentoring Center will host a demonstration followed by an open forge session. The demonstrations are from 9 AM to approximately noon, then the forges are open for hands on work, to either practice what was demonstrated or try something else. Plenty of experienced blacksmiths will be on hand to share their wealth of knowledge and talents. These monthly meetings are free to all NWBA members, and you must be a member to attend.
