At the same time a centre of practice, a school for teaching traditional techniques, a space for sharing knowledge and a meeting place, our workshop is a meeting point for all those curious and interested in the forge, while providing access to a collective practice area equipped with specialized machines and instruments, accessible to beginners and forge professionals alike.
It consists of five coal forges, two of which are French and three English; a gas forge; five cutlery stations; two hammers; five anvils; and a set of tools and instruments necessary for ironwork.
Becoming member is becoming part of our family. You need to take care of our spaces and equipment, so that we can take care of you. The collective workshop is accesible for members only.
The use of a forging station (including a forging fire, an anvil and a tool base) is possible by renting by the hour:
Membership annual fees :400$ + taxes (33$ per month)
Coal Forge rental : 5$/ h + taxes
Powerhammer rental : 15$/ hours
Grinder rental : 15$ / hours
Coal : 40$ + taxes (50 lbs bag equivalent to about 16 hours of forging fire)
Consumables, such as steel and forged coal, are not included in the rental price. We sell most of the consumables you may need.
