Learn the art of blacksmithing in our historic Wagon Shop! Beginner and intermediate classes are offered in the spring, summer, and fall. Check back here for schedules and class descriptions or  join our Blacksmithing email list!

Blacksmithing is a physical art and safety is our number one priority. Students swing hammers, work with hot metal, and move between workstations on a packed dirt floor. For their own safety and that of others, all students must be able to take direction from our instructor. If you have questions about Blacksmithing classes or about accessibility or special needs, please contact us before registering!

Please note, cloth face masks should not be worn while working at the forge; face shields will  be provided to students. Workstations will be spaced to maintain at least 6ft of distance  between members of different households.
