Fine art by Cheryl Whitmore
Blacksmithing by Michael Whitmore
THE WORKSHOP LOCATION IS AT TRUE SERENDIPITY HOMESTEAD HANCOCK MAINE!
In this workshop Mike will show and demonstrate the tools the old trade of Blacksmithing. The bellows, forge, anvils, tongs and much more. Then you will get to help him forge a feather coat hook to take home with you. He will let you swing the hammer, operate the bellows, and treadle hammer. (a foot powered hammer). Anything you are not comfortable doing Mike will do while you watch your creation take shape..
Here at True Serendipity Homestead we have decided to put the 50 plus years of life experience to good use by making available, our art and skills, by teaching others what we have learned. Michael will be offering blacksmith items, wildlife photographs, and workshops in this store. Cheryl will be offering her paintings and workshops.
True Serendipity Homestead,
Great people & experience. Mike & Cheryl have a great spot that they are so kind to share with us, their serendipitous story about how they came to be here in Maine is an excellent one - thank you for being a great example for how to create your own journey!
The highlight of our trip to Maine! We truly happened upon this place - we were up a creek realizing too late that all the other campsites in Acadia were closed for the season. As the name suggests, our time at True Serendipity made our entire trip - it was serendipity at its finest. Mike and Cheryl were lovely, kind hosts - and have thought of all the details. My son and I enjoyed a canoe paddle in the early light on the peaceful pond; a campfire under the stars (with wood thoughtfully left out for us); and most of all a blacksmithing workshop with Mike, who is a fabulous teacher and gave us both an unforgettable experience. I can't recommend enough that you make this a part of your trip - it was a highlight of our time in Maine.
