What you'll do

Utilizing the same principles of metalwork used for over 3,000 years, you will take a plain piece of steel and create functional art out of it! In this class you will learn the fundamentals of blacksmithing then get some iron into the fire.

You will learn how to create useful tools using a hammer and anvil . Leave this one-of-a-kind experience with a handmade hook, fire poker, or BBQ tool and stories to share with your friends. Caution: once you start to forge iron it's tough to stop! You might end up with a new hobby.

A great experience of doing some basic blacksmithing! My partner and I had a lot of fun, although we were sore and tired by the end of the experience. Greg was a patient teacher, and we loved that we got to take our work home!

Had a great time. Definitely recommend this if you’re in the area. Be ready for a workout, and I was able to do this without getting any clothing damaged or dirty, and I also came out with my own creation!
