Blacksmithing has played a vital role in community life in this country since its beginning. The blacksmith’s shop was among the first shops established in new villages, and every town had at least one. Not only did the smith keep the horses shod, but he also built the hardware (including the nails) for houses and barns, the buckles and clasps for harnesses, cooking utensils and pot-cranes for the kitchen, shovels and hoes for field work, along with axes, mattocks, and knives.
While today these things are mass-produced, the fulfillment and satisfaction of producing your own ironwork is well-worth the effort and will result in practical items that will last for centuries.
In our blacksmithing classes, you will learn techniques that will enable you to make an endless variety of useful and beautiful items for your home and shop. We use specific projects to teach the skills, and you will quickly find that by using those same skills in other variations, you can make many other practical projects.
