Intermediate Blacksmithing Classes

Once you’ve learned basic blacksmithing skills, the possibilities are endless.  Intermediate blacksmithing classes are mostly project-focused, with the stated goal of the class being to make a particular item.  However, my teaching focus is always on process–on building transferable skills that you can use to create….almost anything.

These classes are NOT suitable for those who have never hammered hot metal before.  If you’re brand new to the craft please start with one of my Beginning Blacksmithing Classes.

Intermediate Blacksmithing Classes offer a wide variety of projects with which to grow your blacksmithing skills and confidence.
