Become a member
Become a member and be able to rent an equipped work space in our shop (fire, anvil, hammers, tongs) for $5 an hour (additional fee for charcoal of $40 + tax for a 50 lb. bag), in order to progress independently in your practice. Annual membership fee: $400 + tax. Cost to rent a space in the workshop for non-members: $15 an hour.
It is essential for your own safety and for the safety of others to have followed the introductory workshop at the forge to be able to rent work space, whether a member or non-member.
You will be provided with all the tools and safety equipment required to attend the class. Please wear steel-toe footwear and cotton clothing. Do not wear synthetic materials as they tend to melt to the skin when blacksmithing.
Bring your lunch to class as there are not many restaurant options near the shop and we try to keep lunch breaks to one hour or less to ensure time is maximized at the forge. Also bring a water bottle that can refilled at the shop as necessary because you will definitely need to drink lots of water.
