We've been taking our crafts out to the community this month. Kyle hosted the August meeting of the Central Virginia Blacksmith Guild, a really great educational group of local blacksmithing enthusiasts. Johannah taught mosaic classes for the first time. We'll get to those in the next post!

We chose a few favorites of Kyle and CVBG member Richard Garrett working on a decorative element that goes by different names depending on where you are from. Here in the States, it's called a "pineapple twist." Kyle, who trained with English blacksmiths, knows it as a "rosethorn twist."
