9 am – 4 pm, morning tea and lunch provided


The pinnacle of blacksmithing, make the tools to make the tools! This course offers a more in-depth experience in the forge. We make a tool of your choice. For example an axe (with a wooden handle) or a forging hammer. No previous experience is required.

All classes run simultaneously – the difference in the price is to reflect the amount of assistance, time and materials needed for the different options. Please note that axes and hammers require more of Rob’s expertise and you’ll be doing quite a bit of assisting on the sledgehammer (compared to making a knife where you get to be more hands-on yourself).
