AN international festival has been taking place in Hereford this week. 

Ferrous 2024 celebrates the best creative metalwork from the UK and around the world, with makers from over 30 different countries taking part

Placing Hereford at the centre of excellence, this year's theme is 'from earth to iron', which explores sustainability and the origin of materials. 


Delyth Done MBE, head of the school of materials and design at Hereford College of Arts (HCA) and course leader of BA (Hons) Artist Blacksmithing, is the creative director of Ferrous.

She said: “Ferrous is a unique chance to see the work of artists and designers working in metal from all over the world.

"It’s an internationally facing festival, with an ethos of inclusive practice that you can’t see anywhere else, and it’s also an opportunity for our students to reach out to the community and to contribute.

"It’s a chance to teach, to inspire, to participate, and to make a difference through making.”

The festival will  be in the city centre until this Sunday (March 24).
