Call 434-960-9718 before dropping by. We are typically out running errands and taking care of business during the week therefore we don’t have standard office hours outside of our scheduled classes and lab times.
Most two-day blacksmithing classes are $249 per student for the course (both days, 9am-4pm). The one day classes are $125. The Blacksmith’s Knife class is 8am-5pm and costs $349. Certificate of Artistic Blacksmithing classes are priced differently. Special workshops are priced individually. See the specific class page for more information. These prices are located on each class page as well.
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.
