Each year, The ONTARIO ARTIST BLACKSMITH ASSOCIATION provides warmth and creativity to Carl Zehr Square. The work of our local trade of blacksmiths, both traditional and modern, is interesting for all ages. You can see original objects - hand forged gates, railings,accessories, knives, or custom artistic designs - in a wide range of styles being created in front of your eyes. And the blacksmiths love to answer your questions any time.
From Friday to Sunday you can chat with Sean Stoughton, Dan Linkenheld and/or Dave Brandow. If you arrive early on Friday or late on Sunday you may even see Wolfgang Bleckert.
Some hand forged functional and ornamental ironwork, made by members of the Ontario Artist Blacksmith Association will be availbale to purchase. Some members even take custom orders.
The guild has created a photo gallery their booth at Christkindl Market in 2016, check it out here: ontarioblacksmiths.ca/gallery/. Or, if you'd like more information about the association, visit their website.
