Blacksmith Demonstration

JAN. 28 & SUNDAY JAN. 29
Come join blacksmith Peter Laffin and learn about this time-honored craft. Demonstration takes place at the Brooksvale Blacksmith/Sugar Shack. A Blacksmith was always needed to help maintain traditional New England farms like Brooksvale Park. Peter will be making 14th century style candle holders. This is the last Blacksmith demonstration of the year. Following this weekend, we turn our efforts towards maple sugaring season.
