The Gorge Forge

Forging is one of the earliest examples of the “maker” movement. Through the careful and skillful use of available technology, blacksmiths crafted everything from household and industrial tools to jewelry and art. The invention of the forge empowered humanity to create new ways of enriching their society. In the spirit of these past Makers, the Dalles-Wasco County Public Library has stepped into the future and created The Gorge Forge. A place where makers of all ages and backgrounds can unleash their creativity. Whether you’re an aspiring artist, a business owner, or curious community member, The Gorge Forge is here for you. Together we can help build a new world!
