Meet the Makers – Milwaukee Blacksmith

Milwaukee Blacksmith

Tell us about yourself.
We are a family owned and operated Blacksmith shop. My husband and four of our children work alongside us in the shop over hammer and anvil to create a variety of stock and custom items.

What are you presenting at Maker Faire Milwaukee?
We will be doing live demo of several items including how to make a Rubiks Cube Twist.

Milwaukee Blacksmith

What inspires you to make?
An early love of this craft and it’s history…. and the excitement of creating something unique.

What tips or advice would you give to someone who wants to become a Maker?
Always take the leap. There is no failure. You succeed or learn. Both of those are a win.

If you could make one thing that would improve the world, what would it be?
All of our products do improve the world 🙂
