We had the great pleasure of filming a workshop with the Rocky Mountain Smiths. The workshop took place at Dragon Forge Studios in Pine Junction. The purpose of the workshop was to make iron roses for a memorial in Oslo, Norway for the victims of the horrible shootings last year.
I was so impressed with this great group of people. They were very kind, inviting and willing to share their stories and knowledge. We're hoping to get back to Dragon Forge Studios soon and do a piece on the wonderful work that they do there. If you don't know them, Rory and Craig May are fantastic people.
We operate a local (Conifer area) blog and are trying to capture stories, projects and groups like the Rocky Mountain Smiths. If you know of any groups that we might be interested in, please email us at
Those roses are beautiful, and it's so much fun to watch the blacksmiths at work. Thank you for creating this video!

"Now, more than ever, the illusions of division threaten our very existence. We all know the truth: more connects us than separates us. But in times of crisis the wise build bridges, while the foolish build barriers. We must find a way to look after one another as if we were one single tribe.” -King T'Challa, Black Panther
The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it. ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is. ~Winston Churchill
