The next blacksmithing weekend will be held in the spring of 2020
Old time traditional techniques and lore will be explored, exemplified, demonstrated, and celebrated during this weekend workshop. You will get lots of hands-on experience. Our professional blacksmiths and teachers will attentively guide you on this 3-day weekend long journey back into our American roots.
Try your hand at making a hook, hoof pick, candle holder, or fire poker. More importantly learn foundational techniques that can enlighten an aspect of our history or guide you into becoming more deeply involved in this empowering trade.
This event is open to a small group of adults only. (Special exceptions can sometimes be made for mature minors who are accompanied by a chaperoning parent.) *All tools and materials provided* This workshop is geared towards beginners but advanced students are also welcome...
Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to fire up some new possibilities.
*This class is a pre-requisite for folks planning to take knife-making
