When we visited (right after Labor Day), the Forge did not seem to be open. But one of the owners came down from the nearby house and showed us around. We really appreciated that. The ironwork done there is so excellent. Apparently they may be nearing retirement. What a loss that will be.

We did end up buying something, so obviously we liked the work. Very nice work with interior and exterior applications. Handrails and gates were simple to ornate. Lots of tables, shelves and wall decorations. There are some other artists' items displayed. There is a nice small museum at the site that is interesting. We didn't spend the time to view... More

We were amazed by the quality of not only the iron work (beautiful serving dishes, lamps, gates; but also the ceramics displayed with it. Downstairs is the actual forge, and we were able to meet the artist Guy Bell who was very gracious.

We custom ordered a king bed frame from this fantastic artist back in 2000. The bed has been nothing but unbelievable. It has truly been a piece of furniture that we will cherish and pass down to our children. When we visited the forge we saw work he had done for a gate for a beautiful estate. We adapted that...

This is an amazing place to visit one of the few working forges in Canada. It is a small museum, but it definitely gave us a good appreciation of the complexity of this art form. We were also lucky to be able to see one of the artisans at work on a beautiful gate. The woman at the cash in... More

We visited this interesting blacksmithing demonstration shop, small museum and shop (known as an economusee). An economusee is a business whose products are made using traditional methods and is open to the public. At this particular place you could see Guy Bel and his apprentices working on actual wrought iron pieces through a glass observation window. There was also a... More
