Class Schedule

All two-day blacksmithing classes are $249 per student for the course (both days, 9am-4pm). The one day classes are $125.  The modern metal work/welding classes are $325 for the weekend.  Certificate of Artistic Blacksmithing classes are priced differently. Special workshops are priced individually. See the specific class page for more information.

We welcome smiths from 10 years old and up. We suggest that the young smiths (<12 years old) either have a helper for a class like Hatchet or sign up for a different course. Blacksmithing can be physically arduous.  We would like YOU to make the decision for yourself but also would like you to have reasonable expectations.

Don’t see what you are looking for? Have a group? Looking for a unique Bachelor or Bachelorette party idea? Looking for a field trip for middle school or high school students? Contact us for Custom Blacksmithing Class availability!
