Intrigued by blacksmithing and want to give it a try? Here are the upcoming beginning blacksmithing classes at my shop just north of Orlando Florida (near Mount Dora). If you already have some blacksmithing experience, I have a variety of intermediate blacksmithing classes that will help you grow your skills. I also offer private blacksmithing classes to fit your needs and schedule.
One day beginner’s class designed to introduce the basics of the craft of blacksmithing. Beginning blacksmithing classes are suitable for those with little or no prior experience with blacksmithing. You’ll learn about shop safety, how to build and maintain a forge fire, basic metallurgy, and fundamental blacksmithing processes. You will learn to taper, scroll, bend, and twist metal to make basic projects for your home or shop.
Class times: 9 AM to 4 PM, with an hour break for lunch. There are several places to buy food 2 miles from the shop, or pack a lunch and sit and talk blacksmithing while we eat.
Beginning Blacksmithing for 3-4 people is $150.00 per person; for 2 people the cost is $200.00 per person.
I began by posting scheduled classes, but the demand has been so high that people are coming in groups to take classes, and for several months I didn’t have any open spaces to post. So if you’re interested in a class, and don’t see something below that fits your schedule, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
