Our 2017 Conference and AGM will be a lecture-based event hosted by Hereford College of Arts as part of Ferrous 2017 on the 28 & 29 October 2017.

There will also be an opportunity to see two major exhibitions of forgework: ‘Transition’ and ‘Forge’, which will both be open in Hereford, in the Cathedral and Museum respectively.

It will be a weekend full of presentations and talks from a range of international smiths and organisations including:

Professor Richard Smith (USA)

Patrick Quinn (USA)

Christoph Friedrich (Switzerland)

Ratho Byres Forge (Scotland)

Martin Avery (Wales)



Transition Exhibition @ Hereford Cathedral


Thirty-five artworks from fifteen countries are presented; selected artworks were made in response to an open brief based around themes of 'transition'. The brief was purposely written to encourage a breadth of potential creative responses and outcomes.

Forge Exhibition @ Hereford Museum

Contemporary forged metal design is an emerging, innovative international discipline. This exhibition, curated by Delyth Done, represents a paradigm shift from the traditional discourse of the blacksmith and breaks new ground by synthesising and articulating the practice of creative and conceptual working with forged metal.
