It was great to welcome so many people at the Ironart open day on Saturday – part of the Larkhall Festival weekend. The forges were fired up and thankfully it didn’t rain. We had a visit from a gentleman called Sam who popped in…he used to work here as a schoolboy on Saturday mornings in the 1970’s for the late Sam Chantry. Sam Chantry established Ironart in 1967 here in what used to be the local slaughterhouse!
If you missed it please come and see us next year!
Thanks to all those who came along to our Open Workshops event last Friday (12th July). We welcomed 80 esteemed architects, surveyors, heritage professionals and private customers into the workshop where the entire team were hard at work forging a set of ‘Sunburst’ gates for the front of our refurbished site. We broke off during the two sessions while Andy presented a short talk on ‘The creation, preservation and symbolism of architectural ironwork’. The feedback we’ve had from those who attended has been very positive and it was wonderful to see the whole team showcasing their talents.
It was the first of what we hope will be many open days here at Ironart. If you missed it and you’d like to come along to the next one (dates tbc) please get in touch and we’ll make sure you receive an invite.
