Blacksmithing for Kids
Every small town once employed a blacksmith, someone who could fix or create a variety of useful items and from whose shop you would hear the iconic pounding of a hammer on an anvil and smell the smoke of the constant forge fire. Few of us remember a time where that was the norm, particularly children born in the age of the smart phone. Provide your child a glimpse of this staple trade and ancient craft with a one-day course designed for kids. Students will walk away with projects they heated and pounded out with their very own hands, leaving them with both an appreciation of this historical trade and a sense that the world of craft is in their future.
