I’ve been teaching extra classes at Prospect Hill Forge in Waltham these past two weeks, and I love it. Teaching is one of my passions, and to do it in such a cozy and loved shop is a blessing.#blacksmith #blacksmithing #teacher#teachersofinstagram #learnnewskills #handmade#handforged #artsy #happystudents #make #maker#makersgonnamake #badass
Today I demonstrated blacksmithing to 76 transgender kids. It was an honor to be able to bring my craft to such a wonderful group.
Being in a group of people ALL of whom are trans, like me was an amazing feeling. I don’t often get to forge in an environment where everyone else is trans, and we all just get it. Today, I realized just how liberating it can be when we all share that common experience.
Y’know what this means? We need more transgender blacksmiths! Get Smithing! 🙂
