Blacksmithing on Second Saturday

Sat. May 12th from 2 to 9 PM
Adam's Forge, a school & cooperative of artist blacksmiths celebrate the beginning of a new adventure with a new community at the Compound (Los Angeles Industrial Arts Compound) 2640 N. San Fernando Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90065. Enter on Media Center Drive.
Demonstrations of blacksmithing, team striking and foldforming will be ongoing in the forge. Throughout the afternoon and evening there will be demonstrations of wood turning and stone carving.  Food trucks in case you get hungry. Live music. There will be a gallery with fine examples of metal art, wood turning, stone carving and other industrial arts. We will be a part of NELA art 2nd Saturdays when local galleries are open. There will be several artists in other media on display. Other surprises will be happening throughout the afternoon & evening. More fun than a barrel full of hot forging monkeys!
Admission is free.
Come see what's going on.!.html
