I don't know if you realize it, but your exhibitions are also for adults.  I
happily drive for miles to watch a blacksmith give a demo of his skills.
Incidentally, I've bought stuff from a blacksmith too, but even if I don't
buy I love to watch your craft.  I live in the UK just now and British
smithies tend to use all traditional methods right down to old-fashioned
bellows and everything.  Love it!
