For this episode I wanted to share an article from the latest Jan/Feb issue of the California Blacksmith Association magazine. It’s about a CBA member, Serene Silva of Santa Cruz, travelling to Cuba in search of blacksmiths. She was awarded a grant from CBA for the trip and this article is part of her commitment to CBA in exchange for the grant. I love learning about blacksmith scenes in countries around the world and Cuba especially since it’s such a mystery to most Americans because of the travel restrictions for us that have been in place for years.
Now I’d like to take the time to thank our sponsors for today’s episode and that’s the Eureka Springs School of the Arts, aka ESSA. It’s a non-profit school located in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. This year, they are celebrating 20 years of teaching the arts! To see the complete list of classes for 2018, visit the website, http://essa-art.org/ or give them a call (479) 253-5384.
