Jim Shears

Jim has been working as an artist blacksmith for more than 21 years. All of his work is designed specifically to suit the character of the location where it will be situated and is hand forged. He has designed small intricate door knockers, weather vanes, shop signs and clothing rails as well as large double estate gates and public sculptures.

Jim will be exhibiting at: Gateside Mills, Gateside, Fife, KY14 7SU

Other Opening Times: Please phone Jim if you would like to visit his working forge.
Directions: Heading from Auchtermuchty, turn left just after the Gateside town sign. All the way down the hill and around to the back of the building. Jim's forge and shop area have green doors. Heading from Edinburgh come through Gateside and turn right at the end of the stone wall leaving Gateside.
Access: This is a working forge, care must be taken when moving about inside. The forge is wheelchair accessible but care must be taken AND you may get dirty.
Points of Interest: Disused railway line and a burn run along the length of the mill so its a nice place to walk. There is a resident heron too!
