Concho Careers: Blacksmith

News

Artist and Blacksmith, Kevin Stanford became serious about blacksmithing about five years ago when he built is own shop.

Kevin took his first class on blacksmithing back in 1999 at Austin Community College, and after that it was mostly a hobby and put on the back burner until the shop was built. 

Stanford has attended numerous classes and learned different techniques from all over the country but says he also learns a lot from fellow blacksmith that he meets. Some of Stanford’s work is showcased around town at the Chicken Farm Art Center and The Kendall Art Gallery.
