Hi Dave,
Also over here in France (OH of Zoe).

Feel free to come into the workshop to talk about general jobs you have been doing or start a new thread if you have a specific project on hand you could share with the folks.

I just met a really amazing swordsmith this weekend, he might be able to talk to you about ironwork? His name's Steve and the website is www.cunningcrafts.co.uk
I think he's going to start doing workshops soon...
