Artsmith Bex Simon is holding a FREE forging workshop in Hedge End this Saturday, 23 November, from 9:30am - 4:30pm.
The event will take place in the Drummond Community Centre car park where Bex will offer people 30 minute forging sessions on a first come first served basis throughout the day. During the sessions people will be shown how to texture wood grain into steel or forge stems/leaves or other pieces and find out about some of the tools and methods involved in the forging process.
For members of the public who would like to have a go Bex will provide all the safety equipment, but people should be reminded to wear something practical, as forging can create mess. Your artistic endeavours will contribute to the finished pieces!
Bex is holding this event in support of Eastleigh Borough Council’s Hedge End Green Routes public art project. She and her team will be forging new sculptural artworks to help people find their way around the green routes in Hedge End and anyone who takes part in this event will have their contribution included in the finished pieces!
Join Bex and her team on Saturday to find out more about the project and create something unique to contribute to the appearance of Hedge End’s green routes.
