Meet the Instructor
John Walker, Blacksmith
Metalworking, forging, and casting have been long-time passions of Johnâs since, as a hobbyist, he first started making knives in a small urban backyard shop some twenty-seven years ago. Hs first anvil was the head of a ten-pound sledgehammer on which he learned to move and shape hot iron.
Today, John owns and operates Fallen Willow Forge, located on his property in East Gwillimbury where, along with providing ironwork for a log home he built, he does commission forging work and provides blacksmith workshops.
John also operates a mobile version of his forge which is used to provide blacksmith demonstrations at fairs and festivals. He is a regular demonstrator at the Kingston Annual Sheepdog Trials and Festival as well as the Very Victorian Outdoor Christmas Market held in Stratford, Ontario. John is a member in good standing of the Ontario Artist Blacksmith Association.
