The Blacksmiths’ Tree

June 22, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

$2.00

A gift to MiRa Marysville from the blacksmiths of Australia and around the world.

In 2009, the Australian Blacksmiths Association (Victoria) Inc. invited blacksmiths from across the country and around the world to contribute to the creation of a steel gumtree. Five years in the making, the 10m high Blacksmiths’ Tree, as it came to be called, was erected on February 14 2014 in Strathewen.

A few of the leaves contributed were forged from steel, which if left outside, would eventually rust away. Instead of attaching them to the main tree, the blacksmiths chose to make a smaller tree with these leaves and leftover branches from the main tree that could be displayed indoors.

The blacksmiths have chosen to donate this miniature Blacksmiths’ Tree to the community of Marysville for the recently established Marysville Information + Regional Artspace ‘MiRa’.

The Marysville community is excited to celebrate this event and to vie the blacksmiths an opportunity to showcase once more their amazing journey. The formal ceremony will include a short video presentation about the project, the unveiling of the miniature Blacksmiths’ Tree and musical entertainment.
