Clothing

Tous les outils et équipements de sécurité requis pour le cours vous sauront fournis par les Forges. Il vous faudra porter des chaussures à bout renforcé en acier et des vêtements en coton. Évitez à tout prix de porter des vêtements et souliers en matières synthétiques parce qu’ils ont tendance à fondre lorsqu’on travaille à la forge.

Meals

Apportez votre lunch ou planifiez une livraison parce qu’il n’y a pas de restaurant ou de commerce à proximité. Vous trouverez de l’eau à la forge. Toutefois, nous vous recommandons d’apporter une bouteille d’eau, que vous pourrez remplir par la suite autant de fois que nécessaire.
