Old time traditional techniques and lore will be explored, exemplified, demonstrated, and celebrated during this weekend workshop. You will get lots of hands-on experience. Our professional blacksmiths and teachers will attentively guide you on this 3-day weekend long journey back into our American roots.

Try your hand at making a hook, hoof pick, candle holder, or fire poker. More importantly learn foundational techniques that can enlighten an aspect of our history or guide you into becoming more deeply involved in this empowering trade.
