Robbie Berardi schickte der HEPHAISTOS-Redaktion eine E-Mail mit der Bitte, ihm beim Finden eines Arbeitsplatzes behilflich zu sein. Wir lassen ihn im Folgenden selbst zu Wort kommen:

"Greetings from Canada, Heiner Zimmerman recommended I contact your magazine to generate offers for a Journeyman position. Can you help me in my search?....

I am a 31 year old blacksmith with 3 years full time and 2 years part time experience as a blacksmith at the Waterloo Region Museum and Doon Heritage Village in Ontario, Canada.

I have been granted a 3 month unpaid sabbatical starting January 1st 2016 through to late March to study blacksmithing abroad. I have asked for this sabbatical so I can break out of the bubble of working on my own and learn from blacksmiths from all around Europe. I would like the opportunity to work for you and learn as much as I can during this period in exchange for room and food. It is also my intention to make contacts and friends within the blacksmithing community abroad.

Please include a rough estimate of when and for how long you would be interested in having me. Below is a link to some examples of my work which includes reproducing forged artifacts, artistic blacksmithing and forging tools:
