You must be a veteran, active duty military, or first responder (LEOs, EMS, fire, etc.) to register for this class. Participants will learn the fundamentals of blacksmithing and will forge small items such as a hook and bottle opener or cross. These small projects teach the fundamentals of tapering, scrolling, counter scrolling, twisting, offset shoulders, and punching. You will also learn safety procedures and become familiar with the equipment.

Please only register if you know you will attend. We have many veterans and first responders on our waitlists.
