Adult Education Program: Blacksmithing – Items for the Home

participant attends to the fire in blacksmith shop


Saturday, November 11
1:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Advanced registrations required.

Students will have the opportunity to make at least 2 of the following decorative projects for the home: candleholders, napkin rings, hooks, decorative metal paper towel holder, a letter opener, or suggest a project when you register. As a special treat, you can learn how to make leaves out of metal! It is helpful if you have already taken a blacksmithing basics course. Small class size guarantees lots of one-on-one instruction and lots of time at the forge! Dress for working in a shop with a dirt floor, and for the weather (shop is heated by a wood-burning stove only!). Bring eye protection and a water bottle. All costs of materials are included in the cost of the class.

  • Saturday, November 11 from 1:00-4:30pm
  • Blacksmith (Check in at Visitor Center)
  • Number of Participants: Minimum 3, Maximum 5; Ages 18 and up
  • Fee: $75.00
