May 15, 2009 -
Mark of Ollin Sword Design and Shane of Iron Age Armoury will be hosting a "Workshop Day" on June 6th here in South Bend, Indiana. We have a variety of projects in the works and will likely be doing various things such as metalworking, woodworking, wax carving, and possibly wood carving as well. This is a chance to see what we are doing as well as to show off what you are working on and get help, advice, input, or ideas. Nathan Bell and Shane are planning on working on an iron scabbard for Nate that weekend. We will probably also be doing some hilt work. Probably will also plan to do some test cutting Saturday as well.
If you are working on a project and need help/advice/input/ideas, bring them with you. If you aren't sure what to do next, how to do what you want to do, etc., come and get advice from swordmakers and enthusiasts. If you want to watch or help others work on their projects, feel free to show up without a project of your own.
