Please join us in the Blacksmith Shop Museum to try your hand at forging in the longest running blacksmith shop in Alberta.
During this workshop, you will learn about safety in a blacksmith shop, how to draw out metal, flatten, taper, round out, twist and manipulate it over an anvil.
This is a private one-on-one course taught by one of our lead blacksmiths, Henrietta Verwey who is celebrating 20 years of Blacksmithing this year. Included in this workshop:
- metal for your project.
