blacksmithing class

Experience something Unique

Blacksmithing is a traditional craft that teaches students how to work with metal, and create beautiful & functional objects. It’s also a great way for them to learn about metallurgy, physics and design.

In addition to developing practical skills, blacksmithing can also help students develop important life skills, such as:

Problem-solving, Creativity, Perseverance, Attention to detail, Communication, and of course, Teamwork.

FAQ's

Would you offer a discount if more than one child per family attended 

We give a $20 discount for each additional family member.

What would you allow regarding younger siblings (younger than 12) who may be coming along with their parents – Are they able to stay outside the workshop on the property with supervision?

Our farm is not suited for younger children, with open waterways and 4 (friendly) dogs, as such we don’t allow any children under 12 on the property as my workshop area both inside and out is not suited to younger exploring minds.  Insurance for blacksmithing also has a 12y/o cutoff.

Can all parents/care givers attend?

Due to limited size within the workshop, And the need for safe practice, we limit the amount of parents/care givers, to a maximum of 2 per group of 8 children. A supervisory role of a minimum of 1 parent per 4 children is needed.
