Annual Anvil Repair Workshop
Have an anvil that needs some work? Bring it in to our annual repair workshop and bring it back to life! (or just clean up a few broken edges.) We spend the morning going over the anvils, figuring out just what needs to happen, and explaining the process. A few professional welders are brought in to help everyone out. They'll do the welding for you, but there's still a full days work for you to put in. New England Blacksmiths membership required to attend. If you'd like to learn more about New England Blacksmiths, please contact us or visit newenglandblacksmiths.org.
Class deposits are non-refundable. However, if you notify us two weeks in advance of the class that you would like to move your spot to a later class, we will do so at no charge. Within that two week mark, there will be a fee equal to 50% of the overall course price in order to reschedule.
