Here the unofficial update on the main Live forging competition held at Royal Cornwall Show on 4th, 5th, 6th June 2015. The official schedule is still to come, but with the previous post on this competition there’s nothing to stop you making a plan.
Class 5 Live Forging – 2 hours to forge (on the showground) ‘An interpretation of Ying Yang’….. or ‘the Interdependence of Opposites’. Fire, Fuel and Anvil supplied, competitors to supply there own materials and tools.
Sounds good…. There is so much scope for good work! Plenty of time too. Don’t forget to include sound and relevant forging techniques in to your finished piece… likewise don’t over complicate it.
Here’s a link to ‘Ying Yang’ for those of you who are are a little rusty on your Chinese philosophy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yin_and_yang
