What to wear and bring:
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. You will not get to forge if you do not follow these rules.
If you have your own respirator please bring it, otherwise you will be supplied with one (that you will be responsible for bringing to and from class).
When transporting knives please use a knife roll/case, or tightly wrap it in a towel, and make sure to put a small luggage lock on your bag.
