We welcome students 10 years old and up for blacksmithing. Students must be 18 and up for bladesmithing classes. 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.
