The members of Blacksmith Doris gathered together for a special day.
It was time to build ... A Forge of One's Own.
It is not that we dislike the forges at the Australian Blacksmith's Association of Victoria, in fact we do love them very much. It is just that every girl needs their own forge and the only way to get one is to make it yourself.
A lot of the women were comfortable with the tools used, but some had never worked with them before. Those who could taught those who couldn't and by the end of the day everyone could.
