Fernie Forge is a business based near Fernie, British Columbia and operated by Sandra and Dave Barrett, both master blacksmiths from England. My wife and I had the good fortune of meeting them both during our honeymoon last fall. When we got to talking shop, Sandra expressed interest in featuring some of my work at their gallery, The Eye of the Needle Studio, located in the heart of Fernie’s downtown. It’s a beautiful location that features work from blacksmiths and other artists from around the world. I was honoured that she considered my work good enough to be included in their gallery.
If you are ever in the Fernie area, I highly recommend stopping by their gallery.
The address is 260 5 St, Fernie, BC, V0B 1M0.
