Mark enjoys demonstrating the traditional blacksmithing techniques and sharing the knowledge gained over the years as a blacksmith with others that are equally passionate about smithing. In 2004, Mark was pleased to demonstrate for the Ontario Artist Blacksmith Association (OABA) on Wolf Island. Prior to that, Ironfest 2003 provided another rewarding opportunity to meet and share experience and techniques with the Northern Texas Blacksmithing association (all photos courtesy of Gerald Pollard).

In addition to demonstrating, visits to Indonesia have allow Mark to teach blacksmithing to companies in third world countries in an effort to increase efficiency and productivity for these companies
