New Blacksmithing Courses!

The forge is open for summer classes!

The hammers will be swinging again in the Blacksmith Shop, starting this coming July. Registration is now open for a variety of beginning blacksmithing courses for adults and youth. As a Covid precaution, we have reduced the size of these courses: the tuition and materials fee covers two people working together at one forge. As things evolve, we will add additional courses for late summer and early fall. Scholarships available.
