SOLD OUT | Youth/Parent Blacksmith 101

Parent and youth (12 years old and up) this class is for you! Join our experienced blacksmith in the forge to learn how fire, metal and a hammer come together to create a decorative “S” Hook! You will learn a few tricks of the trade in this introductory blacksmith class. Topics covered will include forge safety, tools, and fire building, and you will have an opportunity to work on a first project. No experience necessary! Blandford Nature Center will provide safety equipment, including gloves and ear and eye protection.

Member Adult: $90
Member Teen: $90
Non-Member Adult: $110
Non-Member Teen: $110

This program is only for ages 12 and up. Every registered teen must have a registered adult with them to participate.

Please Note: This program will be held indoors. It is also recommended to dress for the weather – our forge is inside an unheated, drafty building. Long shirts and pants and heavy duty, closed-toe shoes are also recommended for your safety. We suggest non-synthetic clothing for protection from sparks. If you do not have non-synthetic clothing, we can provide a leather apron. Please also bring a water bottle with you.
