The Forging Days in Fiskars Village 2015

The Forging Days in Fiskars Village 2015 is a common name for two happenings, arranged by the two
blacksmithing associations in Finland, Suomen Sepät ry and Taidesepät ry. The two events are:

The exhibition "My Kalevala"

June 14th to September 20th , 2015 in the old Granary in Fiskars Villag

and

The Nordic Championships i Forging 2015

July 30th to August 2nd, 2015 in the old Plough Smithy in Fiskars Village.

The My Kalevala exhibition at the Granary in Fiskars Village displays contemporary blacksmiths'
interpretations of the Kalevala, the Finnish national epic that has strongly influenced our cultural heritage.

The Nordic Championships in Forging were arranged at the turn of July-August
in Fiskars Village. The visitors could enjoy forging at its best, as the Nordic
blacksmiths showed their skills in the competition.

During the competition days there were approximately over 1000 visitors.


A working committee has been responsible for the carrying through of the project. The group has consisted of
master blacksmith Upi Anttila as chairman, master blacksmith Pertti Virta as a member and blacksmith
Martina Lindberg as secretary.
