Jus­tine Southam, a stone carver from Québec’s Eastern Town­ships, par­tic­i­pated in a hack­saw-mak­ing work­shop at last week­end’s Smith-In Black­smith Fes­ti­val at the Glen­garry Pi­o­neer Mu­seum in Dun­ve­gan. “The On­tario Artists Black­smith As­so­ci­a­tion (OABA) has done a great job of ad­vanc­ing the trade and con­nect­ing peo­ple. This year’s event brought in peo­ple not only from On­tario and Québec, but also from Ver­mont, Penn­syl­va­nia and Con­necti­cut which was great. It’s a great group of peo­ple com­ing to­gether to share their knowl­edge and tools. There are not many events where we can get to­gether, es­pe­cially in Eastern On­tario. It’s also great for the folks from Québec to meet the On­tario black­smiths.” More in­side.
