What you'll do

*IF YOUR PREFERRED CLASS IS FULL/UNAVAILABLE, PLEASE SEND ME A MESSAGE SO I CAN SNEAK YOU IN *I CAN SHIP YOUR KNIFE IF YOU'RE UNABLE TO TRAVEL WITH IT In this 3 hour class, you'll begin with a horseshoe and end with your very own, handmade knife! Absolutely no prior experience is required and is suitable for ages 8+. No lifting required and little strength necessary, though hand-eye coordination always helps (READ DISCLAIMER AT BOTTOM PRIOR TO SCHEDULING). The curriculum is designed to flow seamlessly and be tons of fun: 1) You'll begin the class by putting on safety gear and reviewing safety procedures. 2) You'll use traditional blacksmithing equipment (forges, hammers, and anvils) to forge a knife from a horseshoe. 3) Each step will be demonstrated and guidance will be provided throughout the class. DISCLAIMER: Participants will be using hammers to move hot steel. This implies that your arm may become sore from hammering! Don't worry, we've never had a student fail to complete a project. If you have any disabilities that may prevent you from standing and hammering for long periods of time, please let me know prior to scheduling.

Buddy has been blacksmithing for over 15 years and is a
