Information on posponed classes due to COVID-19

UPDATE : no reopening in june

Updated: May 29, 2020

The Forges de Montréal flame has not been extinguished, but we must respect government measures. We have decided not to resume our activities for the month of June.

Planned re-opening: week of July 15, 2020.

Hours of operation

The workshop is closed to the general public and to member artisans for an indefinite period of time.

Visits and events

All visits and demonstrations have been postponed to a later date.

Our Team

Our administrative team works from home, like many of you.

Only the founding blacksmith Mathieu Collette is allowed to enter the workshop and continues to work on our projects.

Which training courses are postponed?

All our trainings are postponed. We will contact the participants concerned as soon as we know when our trainings will be rescheduled.

When will Les Forges restart their training?

We are ready to start giving our trainings again as soon as we get the green light from the Government, and we will do so! We are looking forward to the week of July 15, 2020.

When will my training be rescheduled?

We will send you a survey to choose your new date as soon as we can resume our activities.

What measures will be in place when I go to my training?

We will follow government guidelines to ensure the safety of participants and employees. It is possible that we may reduce the capacity of the training courses to 3 people to keep 2 meters between all of them. Also, we have implemented additional hygiene measures.

I live in an area other than Montreal. Will this have an impact?

It depends on public health and the reopening of traffic between regions. Write us an email to tell us which region you live in so we can do the appropriate follow-up:

How do I sign up for training this summer or fall?

We offer to purchase a gift certificate for the value of the training! This way, you will have priority in choosing your dates when our training calendar comes out! Write to us at if you are interested.


In this time of crisis, the courses we offer are our only source of income. Unfortunately, we can no longer make any repayments. We are postponing all our courses until our activities can resume. Thank you for your understanding!
