Advanced Blacksmithing

Advanced Blacksmithing 2017 - listening to Shawn Cunningham

This is not a beginner course and is restricted to graduates from the WDM Introduction to Blacksmithing course and those who have equivalent blacksmithing experience.

Advanced Blacksmithing 2018
Douglas Morlock

April 6-8, 2018

Blacksmith Douglas Morlock


Douglas Morlock has been a professional Blacksmith since 2003, which is most of his adult life. Originally a goldsmith, his work focuses on ornate embellishment, purity of form and the advancement of traditional technique.

He's studied extensively both in Canada and abroad, his work has been featured in public and private galleries, various exhibitions and snobby magazines – not that any of that is relevant. His sole occupation and consuming interest is the art and craft of blacksmithing, and he hopes to share whatever insight this pursuit has given him.

You can find him weekdays, weekends and holidays in his nifty new shop, on the Banks of the Trent River in Campbellford, Ontario. More information about Douglas can be found on his website:
