Introduction to Blacksmithing - SEEKING STUDENTS

This weekend is the first of this years 'Introduction to Blacksmithing' courses.

I am seeking students for this 18 hour hands on program!

Friday Evening - 8 - 10 pm : Lecture on materals, terminology, historic overview and 'how to buy an anvil'
Saturday - 9 am - 5 pm : demonstrations and forge work
Sunday - 9 am - 5 pm : demonstrations and forge work

The program is limited to only FOUR students. Each will have their own fully equipped anvil work station, and share a forge with another student. Both propane gas and traditional coal forges will be in use.

This program will pack enough information and basic training to keep you busy on your own for months to come perfecting the skills!

The Wareham Forge is located north of Orangeville Ontario, just off Highway 10 (near Flesherton).
How to get here? See the directions sheet
