If you are interested in getting involved in the Forging Links project take a look at the events below…
The following activities are now in progress:
1. The Bridges project is open to updating until 10th July – leave information and images on the comments posting facility. Should it also include railways? And lighthouses? The prototype of the book is available in libraries throughout the borough and the next version will be launched on 23rd July at Wednesbury at the Foghorn launch or at the Museum. Now is your chance to add to it.
2. The words. The names of the trades – furnace-keeper, puddler, whitesmith. Celebrate them before they fade. Keep a list. Send it via the comments facility. Workshops from now on include sessions for people to engrave the words on steel and glass.
3. Wall of Iron. We still need pieces of iron – hand them in at The Public, Wednesbury Museum, and Smethwick Archives Dept. And we need helpers to put the work up on Friday 22nd July, Saturday 23rd July and Sunday 24th July, 11-6 each day. We can promise a stunning artwork at the end of it.
And watch this space for dates and places of future events.
