Gichner Memorial Hammer-in

The Annual Bill Gichner Memorial Hammer-In at the Hutchison Brothers farm in Cordova, Maryland, January 4-6, 2013. This year’s demonstrator is William Roan of
Oakland, California.  Bill Roan is a well respected artist blacksmith, skillfully using traditional and more modern methods to achieve his ends. He has a wry sense of humor which makes itself apparent in some of his sculptures. He is skilled in helping others learn by doing, so you can expect to be challenged and encouraged in the production of the demonstration pieces. Passion and Power by Nancy Zastrow has a number of photos of some of his whimsical work. He is an artist whose work proclaims that you can be yourself when creating, and can expect your work to be notable and well-received.  Registration form now available.
