Ember+Forge: Behind the Scenes at Casa del Herrero

April 6 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm PDT

Casa del Herrero is excited to announce its partnership with Santa Barbara Forge for a unique blacksmith event on Saturday, April 6th from 1:00 to 4:00 pm.
Upon arrival, guests can take a walk through George Fox Steedman’s historic blacksmith workshop and get a behind-the-scenes look into the 100-year-old space. This is a rare opportunity to get a more in-depth explanation of Steedman’s tools, craftsmanship style, and vision when he designed and created his metalwork projects.
While tours of the workshop continue throughout the afternoon, live blacksmith demonstrations will take place outside the workshop in the courtyard. Blacksmiths from Santa Barbara Forge will recreate iconic Steedman pieces and embellishments found throughout the estate, with finished items being sold in a silent auction at the end of the event. All proceeds from the auction will benefit Casa del Herrero.
During the workshop tour and blacksmithing demonstration, you will have the chance to ask metalworkers and museum docents any questions you may have.
Along with that, we will have a small exhibition featuring photos, original Steedman metalwork drawings, and rarely-seen heirloom artifacts on display. The Steedman Silver Book (authored by Robert Sweeney with photography by Matt Walla and a foreword by the late George Steedman Bass) will also be available for purchase inside the Casa’s new gift shop.
Drinks and a special BBQ lunch on George Steedman’s very own hand-forged grill will be included. Abbreviated tours of the house will also be available, as always.
