Forge your way in steel with our unique Blacksmithing program. Prepare for an experience like nothing you’ve ever done.

Below, you will find an outline of the classes and skills progressions taught in Blacksmithing classes offered at White Flint Creations. Classes are offered by appointment only. 

The two class progressions, Fundamentals of Blacksmithing and Becoming a Bladesmith are meant to be taken in order, as skills in each class build upon previous classes.  Classes may be altered at the Instructor’s discretion to best fit the student’s needs.  This differentiation is crucial to the student’s well-being and success in the project at hand.

Blacksmith Experience

(~1-2 hours) $179

The Blacksmith Experience is meant for those who wish to get a taste of forging. The Experience is great for complete beginners who have never swung a hammer of any type before. These are also great for someone who might be feeling nervous about working with hot metal.

Class Progression

Students are encouraged to take the class progression in order.  These classes build upon each other and move with increasing speed as classes progress.  The first series of classes build a foundation of blacksmithing skills including how to properly use a hammer and anvil, how to move metal to the shapes that you want, how to use a variety of tools, all with a focus on proper technique.  Due to the nature of working with hot steel, participants must be aged 12 or olderParticipants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a legal guardian in the class.

Fundamentals of Blacksmithing

$169-189 Single Class

$675 Four Class Package (must buy all four classes together)

  1. Bend metal to your will
  2. Beat metal into submission
  3. Cut metal with precision
  4. Punch metal with holes 

The second series of classes will focus much more on modern bladesmithing and should be taken after completing the Fundamentals of Blacksmithing.  In these classes, students will apply multiple techniques from the Foundations classes to forge, heat treat, and grind a finished blade.  If time allows, students will have the opportunity to take home a finished blade.  These classes are longer than the Fundamentals, and as such can be taken as a one or a two-day class.

Due to the nature of the tools used in these classes, all participants must be aged 12 or older.  Participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a legal guardian in the class.

Becoming a Bladesmith

$200-$400 Single Class

$1000 Complete Bladesmith Package (must buy all four complete classes together)

  1. Coil Spring Kiridashi
  2. Railroad Spike Fixed Blade
  3. Railroad SpikeTomahawk 
  4. EDC Fixed Bladel with holes 

The final set of classes are available to those who have completed the Fundamentals of Blacksmithing classes above.  These classes rely on mastery of the skills in the previous classes, thus should not be taken by new students.  While not necessary, the skills gained in Becoming a Bladesmith are very helpful in these classes.

  2. Axes
  3. Pattern Welded/ Damascus Steel
