I offer one-on-one classes with people interested in creating their unique vision under my guidance.
Come in and bring to life the knife, dagger, or sword that's been in the back of your mind all this time. I'll work with you to bring that historical, video game, movie, or fantasy blade to life on your schedule and at your pace. This is where my love of teaching and creating unique blades come together to make your dream blade a reality. No prior forging experience is required. Materials and safety gear are provided, just wear the right clothing, eat a big breakfast, and bring a water bottle; we'll be forging all day. Expect projects to be broken apart over several days/class.
Alternatively, if you want to come in regularly to work towards a comprehensive understanding of the process, starting with the basics and working our way up to larger and more sophisticated damascus blades, that can be arranged through multiple classes.
This is available to adults and children over 10, however a parent must accompany their child.
Classes are held at :
70 Franklin ave
Brooklyn NY 11205
One-on-one classes run anywhere from 10:00am til 10:30pm and are available Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. The exact start/end time is negotiable, I pride myself on accommodating student's schedules.
