ADVENTURES

Mesmerized by Fire

 

Regardless of age or gender, watching a hard piece of steel being transformed into functional art through heating and hammering while fiery red is always mesmerizing.  This 1/2 hour adventure is designed for groups of up to ten people and is for all ages.  Our blacksmith will explain and entertain as he forges a decorative key ring. One person in the group gets to participate in the forging process by wielding the hammer to shape the hot steel. The finished key ring is then given to the group as a keepsake.

                                                                                                                           $50 per group

Taste of Fire

 

This one hour class is perfect for those who want to experience the age old art of blacksmithing for the first time. Working out of a modern propane forge and dressed in protective gear, you will hammer, chisel and punch decorative details into your choice of a horse or fish shaped bottle opener.  You will learn how to use tongs to move your piece in and out of the fire and how to control your hammer as you transform your cold hard piece of steel into a functional piece of art.                                                                   $45 per person

Flirt with Fire

 

In this two plus hour blacksmith class, you will experience what it is like to completely transform a piece of steel into a functional hook with a twist. Along the way you will learn some of the foundational skills of blacksmithing; hammer control, drawing, tapering, twisting, punching and scrolling. We will also share a bit about the history and future of the art of blacksmithing, teach you a little about metallurgy, throw in some fun anecdotes and finally tell you where to feed your new found passion; flirting with fire.                     $95 per person

Beauty from Fire

 

This two plus hour blacksmith class teaches blacksmith skills that are more technical. Hammering in this class requires less strength but more precision. You will start with 1/4 inch round stock which you will forge to a taper and draw out for your stem. Once that is done, you will flatten then taper the edge, cleave the rose petals then roll the rose into a tight flower. Over the anvil's horn you will make a loop at the pointed end then twist it around itself. Add a key ring and start showing off your key fob!                               $95 per person

Forged with Fire

 

The popular TV show, Forged in Fire has sparked alot of interest in bladesmithing. In this half day adventure, you will experience the thrill of forging your own knife. In making the Mountain Man Skinner, you will learn basic knife making skills including forging  heat, hammer control, and how to use the anvil to fuller, draw, taper, round, scroll, and chamfer. You will finish your blade edge on the grinder and learn tempering and sharpening tricks.

                                                                                                                       $150 per person

At Blacksmith Adventures, you will learn several basic blacksmith skills and techniques. Our experienced instructor will guide, cajole and assist you, if necessary. Come, give blacksmithing a try. You might surprise yourself!

Not sure what blacksmithing is all about? That's why we provide this experiential opportunity. Essentially, the process of blacksmithing requires four basic things:  something to heat the work, something to hold the work, something to put under the work, and something to apply force to the work.  At Blacksmith Adventures, you will use a gas fueled forge that reaches temperatures of 2000 degrees Fahrenheit to heat the steel to a malleable orange white heat. Then, using long handled tongs to hold the work, you will pull the steel from the fiery furnace and move it to the anvil. Working quickly, you will shape the steel with forceful blows of the hammer. Before it is black, it is back in the forge! Step by step, heat by heat, you will shape the steel into a functional piece of art until, at last, it is finished and plunged into a vat of cool water, quenching and hardening the steel with a cloud of steam. A quick brush to remove the scale and polish it up, now you have bragging rights!

Blacksmith Adventures is a family friendly experience without discrimination to age, sex or previous experience with metal. Class size is limited to 4 participants. Team building sessions are limited to 8 participants and require additional time. The minimum age for participants is 12 years old. Bystanders are welcome but space is limited.

Participants will be provided with safety education as well as full safety gear including eye and ear protection, protective leather aprons and heat resistant Kevlar gloves. To participate, long pants and closed toed shoes are required; long sleeve shirt recommended.
