Join blacksmith, Ty Murray, for a hands-on blacksmithing workshop. You will be working outdoors over a coal fired forge. There is only one forge and anvil and it will have to be on a take a turn – based event. He will stay all day until everyone has had a chance to make their own leaf key chain or hook.
If you are an experienced student, he will have something different for you to make. Plan to spend a relaxing day working with fellow students. Discover the historic beauty of the iron forge! Wear cotton clothing and closed toe shoes – something you don’t mind getting small holes in.
A $60.00 class fee plus a $5.00 materials fee.
