ALEX POLE FIRES UP THE FORGE

 

The Good Life Experience blacksmith Alex Pole will be back this year and this time he's bringing The Forge. This is will be a much bigger operation and four festival goers at a time will have the chance to take part in his hour long workshops making campfire tools and equipment, and many more can see his spectacular demos throughout the day and evenings. There will be a shop selling products with a connection to The Forge, and there will also be The Forum, an open space with other workshops and speakers and discussions. There will be a charge for these workshops to cover material costs, and you will be able to sign up for a space when you get to the festival.

11-12 AM - FORGING A CHEFS KNIFE
