I offer small or personal classes with people interested in creating their unique vision under my guidance.
Come in and bring to life the knife 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/classes.
Bring a friend or loved one along to make it a two student class for a discount.
This is available to adults and children over 10, however a parent must accompany their child.

What to wear:
Only wear natural fiber clothing, no synthetics or blends. Jeans and leather shoes are a requirement. I recommend bringing a T-shirt and a long sleeve shirt. Make sure your pant cuffs go over the tops of your shoes, and there are no holes in any of your clothing.
Wear only clothing that you can part with, for it may be destroyed.
