Historic Ironwork Conference in the heart of a World Heritage City.

BathIRON’s first ever conference will showcase the ancient craft of blacksmithing and demonstrate the relevance of an ancient art-form that still lives on today.

Master smiths will be forging a new balustrade for the Parade Garden’s bandstand, and there will be opportunities to try your hand at forging, enjoy some storytelling and live music, as well as demonstrations and exhibitions.

The National Heritage Ironwork Group (NHIG), need your help to make this event happen. You can get involved by sponsoring an event or purchasing one of their hand-forged treble clefs, all contributions will enable the event to go ahead and support the crafts that help to build Bath’s beautiful architecture.
