Demonstrating Heritage … the Blacksmith’s Way

24 Apr

In 2007, interviewer Liz McCutcheon and videographer Bob Dornan teamed up to capture an oral history with blacksmith Charles (Chuck) Everitt. That video included a conversation about blacksmithing as well as two demonstrations done for two different groups of school children.

Just in time for the Walker Ranch “Spring Heritage Day” (Sunday, April 26), we offer an MROHP “short” produced by Jenna Woods. Jenna’s video, “A Fourth-generation Colorado Blacksmith,” brings a delightful blend of talk and strike (hint: a blacksmithing term.)

Watch here or on YouTube. And get ready for sparks!

    My kids always loved going to the Walker Ranch Heritage Days. Great to have this up-close, inside look at blacksmithing.
