Coles Castings is running a casting demonstration at the Oak Fair at Stock Gaylard 26th and 27th of August.
The Oak Fair is a celebration of the countryside, conservation, woodland, timber, traditional craft, rural history and Dorset. Stephen and Necole will be on hand to demonstrate traditional green sand moulding techniques and casting aluminium toppers for local artisan blacksmiths at Six Penny Forge. We will also be casting some heritage ‘polo’ roundels as part of the larger Dorset Fingerpost Project restoration work ongoing around the county. For more information about these projects see:
or just stop by our display. We will be on hand to answer any questions and take orders for any letters, roundels or arms you may need for your village or parish.
We will also have on display a selection of some larger artworks designed and cast by us for your viewing pleasure. We look forward to seeing you there!
