Story

The first picture is a Trivet I am in the process of finishing. It needs the internal scrolls adjusting and then it will be complete.

My name is Cameron Williams, I am 19 years old and am training to be a Blacksmith at Holme Lacy College in Hereford. I have been interested in Blacksmithing since I was a child and love my college course.

I have also worked for a year prior to college, as an apprentice Blacksmith to a professional blacksmith. During this time I helped to make a Mezzanine floor for the Globe in Hay on Wye, a Booth for the local chemist, and railings for a local cottage. I also make knives, tools and pokers, along with other creative items. You could say Blacksmithing is in my blood.

I am making cultural items at college for the three county show and would love to raise enough to buy my own small forge and tools. College does not provide extra materials and forge time during my days off as they don't have enough funding..

I can offer tracking my progress and make small scale bespoke items for anyone that sponsors me. I am attaining a good level at college, with distinctions, and want to become a master Blacksmith. and Architect. I will be going on to complete my BA.

I do not claim any benefits, nor do I receive a grant or bursary and have to pay for all my college fees and materials by working. I love working and it gives me a great sense of achievement.. I have good references and I am honest, reliable and hardworking.

If I had the chance to own a small forge I could increase my earnings by making and selling my work. This would enable me to afford rent, college fees and travel expenses, plus the extra skills and experience I wish to attain. I have made many of my own tools thus far, including, tongs, drifts, punches. bolster plates and a former for a fly press. I am also learning, mig, tig, stick and gas welding and fabrication at college.

If you don't donate a share would be useful and appreciated.

If anyone would like to know more information, please ask.

Thank you for reading,

Cameron.

    Hello this is my first post hopefully the first of many to keep all my supporters updated on my progress at college and other things. This is my sconce (wall mounted candle holder) that is based off the universe according to viking/Norse mythology. If i get this finished in time it will be entering the three county's show that's coming up. All of this has been made by my own hand and there is no use of power tools at all. Hope you enjoy!

    Had a very interesting chat with Cam. He’s full of ideas, and passionate about creating useful, beautiful objects crafted from metal. He will most definitely become a skilled craftsman. Good luck Cam!

    You are talented and hard working, I hope everyone donates as much or as little as they can afford. One day you will be helping a struggling student. Hope my donation gets the ball rolling for you.
