Class Progressions

The class progressions, Fundamentals of Blacksmithing and Becoming a Bladesmith are meant to be taken in order, as skills in each class build upon each other. These classes build upon each other and move with increasing speed as classes progress. 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.

All participants must be aged 12 or older.

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.

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 Fundamentals 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, and how to use a variety of tools, all with a focus on proper technique. 

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 Spike Tomahawk
    OR
    Blacksmith’s File Knife
  4. EDC Fixed Blade, full tang handle

This series of classes focuses 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. These classes are longer than the Fundamentals, and as such can be taken as a one or a two-day class.

*Details: Purchase and reserve any Blacksmith Experience, Fundamentals of Blacksmithing, or Becoming a Bladesmith Class, and bring any age-eligible friend, family member, coworker, date, or anyone else you want to hammer some steel with for free. Please note: Only the registered student and one friend may participate in a class. Others may watch…
