Youth/Parent Blacksmith 101

Parent and youth (13 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, which you will adorn with holiday ribbon flare! 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.

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.
