Edinburgh Doors Open Day.  P. Johnson & Company invite you to visit the forge.

At Ratho Byres Forge, we are opening the forge doors and taking part in the Civic Trust Edinburgh Doors Open Day event on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th September 2016.  We will be open from 10am - 4pm both days and entry is free.
This is a rare and unique opportunity to see inside an award winning modern day working forge.  Come along and take in the sights and sounds of the fires roaring and the hammers ringing.  Watch live forging demonstrations by our talented artist blacksmiths.  View slideshows and look over portfolios of past commissions.  Take a guided tour around forge and  learn about the equipment and modern technology that we use hand in hand with traditional techniques allowing us to explore and exploit the plasticity of our chosen medium, mild steel.
The Ironwork Gallery has a range of small scale forged metalwork which will be available for sale.  Work includes forged key rings, clocks, garden seating and sculpture, both for the home and the garden.
We look forward to welcoming you to Ratho Byres Forge, the fires will be lit, the anvils will be ringing the blacksmiths will be forging.
