Thank you to The Bloomfield Group for sponsoring the Rally Ground in 2024. 

Artist Blacksmith’s Association NSW Inc.

Members of the NSW Artist Blacksmiths Association will be carrying out various forging demonstrations over the Steamfest weekend. You will be able to see how the steel is heated using both gas and coke forges, and how it can then be formed into various designs.

They will be situated at the top of the rally ground next to the main shed and are looking forward to showcasing both how they forge and what can be achieved.

Don’t forget to pay them a visit as they will also have items for sale.
