What you'll do

Students will be introduced to the shop, including the necessary information to forge safely. We will then move into basic forging concepts including hammer control, tapers, drawing out, etc. Students will generally complete one small project such as a bottle opener, leaf keychain, or possibly a fire poker. Projects will then receive a finish and will be ready for use upon your departure!

What's included

Food
Light snacks such as fruit, granola bars, etc.
Drinks
available upon request.
Equipment
Eye and ear protection will be available. However, students are encouraged to bring their own personal protective equipment.

Your host

Lance

Lance

I’m an artist blacksmith interested in sharing the craft with beginner to intermediate level students. I have completed various training courses including the advanced table making course at the John C. Campbell Folk School, which has a heavy focus on traditional joinery techniques. My personal forging interests range from decorative/functional items to any type of forged tools. No experience necessary for this course!

Where you'll be

Classes will be conducted at my home shop. We will briefly orient to all special tools and equipment prior to beginning the class.

Availability

Keep these in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be canceled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 2 guests ages 18 and up can attend.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

Students should be physically capable of swinging a hammer and standing for most of the course time.
