Workshops and Classes
When: Wednesday evenings from 5-8PM.
Price: $30 to particpate; free to watch!
If you are interested in taking one of our classes, we strongly suggest that you attend the Open Forge prior to taking your course. Come and meet the guys, take in the environment, get a feel for the metal and the heat, learn safety, etc.
* If you cannot make it to an Open Forge but are still interested in getting started, please check out our AirBnB option! This class caters to Beginners, as it teaches the basic skills you’ll need to start forging on your own!
