Over the last month, thanks to support given under an individual skills grant by https://cultivatorcornwall.org.uk and the help of our Business Adviser Sam Taft, Nigel has been able to enlist the support of a very talented traditional blacksmith, Tristan Kessell.
Tristan was able to come to Nigel’s home forge at The Old Smithy. Carwinion Road. Mawnan Smith TR115JF and work with Nigel to improve his basic smithing skills and help him master the art of hot forging. You will see in the photographs attached that they had a busy time.
One of the more unusual items they worked on was a Cornish Pilot Gig Weathervane. More to come about this unique piece later.
Thank you Tristan it was amazing to work with you and I learned a lot.
