Hammered Heart Forge
Blacksmithing ... spike to knife workshop
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.
Workshops start at 11am until approximately 4:30pm.
Workshop cost is $100 per person.
Workshops are conducted at the Hammered Heart Forge Studio located at 272 Lowell Drive in Sharpsburg.
We're located on a working horse farm please mind the ducks, riders, dogs, geese and other critters on the way in:)
