Meet a Maker at SCC

When you think of Pittsburgh and Steel a couple things immediately come to mind, not necessarily in this order:
Andrew Carnegie
Dirty Steel Plants
The Wrath of Andrew Carnegie by Alternate Histories
FlashDance....what a feeling indeed. 
But Pittsburgh steel isn't what it used to be and that is where we come in. 

Blacksmithing: An Iron-troduction on June 13, 5:30-7 pm

With Chris Holt & John Steel, of Steel Welding & the Pittsburgh Area Artist-Blacksmiths Association
Join us for an educational evening about the age-old craft of blacksmithing, beginning with a presentation on creative trends in decorative ironwork. Learn to identify good ironwork, how to care for rusted iron, and about choices for railings and gates. See and feel the difference between mass-produced and finely crafted work. Tuition is $60 and includes a hand-forged dinner bell to sweeten the experience.

For more information or to register, e-mail Sherrard Bostwick or call 412.261.7003, x25.
