After starting his blacksmithing journey with an improvised forge in his garage, Ivan discovered and joined Les Forges de Montreal in 2012 where he began really learning.
At first he forged as a hobby, in parallel with his work as a mechanic. Now lives the craft of blacksmithing, which solidifies his connection to his ancestral past and provides a path to access the constant challenges of being a true craftsman in today’s world. ” I chose this profession because it is a very old, very practical and self-sufficient. It adapts through the ages and now so do I”.
