This is an hands-on event. We'll be transforming a railroad spike into a knife using forge, hammer, anvil and a little sweat.  Designed for beginners ... no experience necessary:)

The workshop is led by Michael Sebacher, a local artisan and teacher.  See his bio here.

You'll have a chance to explore a working blacksmith-artisan studio located on a working horse farm. You'll learn some basic blacksmithing techniques and enjoy the company of others who share your interest.

We take only three students per session to optimize safety and ensure a quality experience.


Currently, (July 2022) workshops are scheduled every Saturday and every Sunday.  Workshops begin at 11am and go until approximately 430pm.

Space is normally available if you can schedule 3 to 4 weeks in advance however ASK about current availability ... occasionally there's openings from cancellation or workshops being less than capacity
