About this Event

Get down and dirty with Paddy Blacksmith extraordinaire! With the 2 day hands on learning to find out.

We will be attempting to build a functional mine rehab model (thingy) to show the basic mechanics of mine rehabilitation.....that might catch on fire (O_O)

Limited to 10 people - no cost to participants.

Over the two days you will work with Paddy and the coal hole team to come up with a working sculpture that replicates the mine rehabilitation projects...

Totally ok if you have no idea about mine rehabilitation or sculpture building...thats why it's called a workshop :)

About Paddy:
