Weekend Workshops

Weekend workshops are perfect for a beginner looking to try their hand at blacksmithing as well as students looking to learn more or improve their skill set.

Extended workshops offer an opportunity for students to spend a longer time period working in our shop with our instructors. These workshops are an in-depth look into projects and techniques.

Forging Focus

6-Week Course

Forging technique and tooling is the key to quality work. Whether you’re interested in sculpture, toolmaking, architectural work or anything in between, this intensive workshop is a six-week course that covers a broad range of forging techniques both at the anvil and the power hammer. Strong emphasis will be placed on toolmaking and how those forgings and techniques are beneficial to all other areas of blacksmithing. Students will use these tools and others to execute a variety of forging and joinery projects that will illustrate proper tool usage and care.

Housing

We offer off-campus communal housing for all our workshops that is just a short walk to our shop.
