Hi all, just testing the water here.

The Sliahb Aughty Furnace Project is thinking about organising a bloomery iron smelting event in Woodford, Co. Clare in Ireland in the summer of 2018.

We would supply ore (bog ore + probably manganese-rich bog ore), fuel (locally made charcoal) and probably most construction materials. We'll likely be able to trow in accommodation and food as well.

I realise this is very early days, but would any individual smelters or groups be interested in this?

This is our website www.furnaceproject.org and here is our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/FurnaceProject/

You can answer here or via email prondelez@yahoo.com
