13 Jun The Irish Artist Blacksmiths Association AGM Weekend
The Irish Artists Blacksmith Association (www.irishblacksmiths.com) has invited Guild members to join them during their AGM weekend to be held on 7th and 8th October 2017 at Ballinliss Forge (www.ballinliss.com) Newry, Northern Ireland.
The weekend will include a Forge-In where it is planned to make a silhouette of a sailor for the Newry Maritime Association to remember all the sea going men from the area who were lost at sea.
Details are yet to be finalised but accommodation on a Glamping Site with Shepherds Huts and Pods will be arranged by IABA, therefore they need number of attendees so that a good price can deal can be made.
Members are urged to confirm their interest without commitment urgently together with number of nights accommodation required. Further details will be advised as soon as they become available.
This is an excellent opportunity to promote the Guild and form closer ties with the IABA which had many members attend our IBF event in 2014.
