Open Forge


We’re always looking for ways to make life more fun and blacksmithing more accessible to all.  So, we’ve done it again: we’re opening the shop once a month, for an Open Forge Night! So, what do you need to know? Who can come? How many smiths?  Fear not, and read on: all will be revealed. 

This night is specifically for blacksmiths and hobbysmiths who have completed (at least) a beginner class.  The class does not have to be with us, but you should have obtained enough knowledge and skill to be able to run your own projects/practice.  We will be there to monitor the evenings, but will not be providing instruction (although we are always glad to give our two cents about the viability of projects!).

Upcoming Sessions

There will be 4 spots available per session, which will be on the second Tuesday of the month, beginning in December.  The session will run for 3 hours, from 5:30 to 8:30, and will cost $75/session, plus materials. Please note: the charge is per slot, not per hour.

Come and enjoy the company of other smiths, use the forges, vises and anvils, and get some work done!  We look forward to seeing you soon!
