Co będziecie robić

Guests will be invited into my open air forge and learn some of the basics of blacksmithing. We will start with a tour of the shop, explanation of the uses and functions of the tools, and some history and education about smithing. After a discussion on safety and demonstrations of tool usage they will take up a hammer and use it to create a unique keepsake of steel. Students will be give the option of forging a railroad spike knife or a piece of iron age jewelry. We will cover the entire process beginning to end and I will be right there to assist them in creating the perfect piece for them. Once they have finished, we will clean and polish their new treasure and seal it against rust.

Hi everyone! I am a blacksmith and bladesmith that loves history. I focus on the early to middle iron age and the cultures and artifacts of that time. This love of history led me to pursue blacksmithing and bladesmithing and to devote myself to constant study and improvement. I have gotten to work with some of the best smiths in the region and I want to pass my knowledge on to others in order to grow the craft and spark the forges of imagination in others.

Gdzie będziecie

My forge is an open air structure with three anvils, a wall full of tools, and plenty of steel to learn on and enjoy. The open air helps control the heat of the forges and keep the sound of the hammering quite comfortable.

This was an awesome experience! Brendon loves his craft and it’s obvious in the way he walked us through the process of making our knives.

Brenden did an amazing job showing us the basics of being a blacksmith. Me and my fiancé had an amazing time and learned a lot. We hope to continue improving our skills in the future. Would definitely do this again.

It was a lot of fun. We learned a lot and were able to create awesome forged railroad spike knives. If you want to learn is a small group setting it’s perfect.

This was an awesome experience! Brenden is friendly, passionate, and patient. He is very excited about blacksmithing, history, and teaching and you can tell he loves having new friends in the shop learning about the craft. He strikes a perfect balance of do-it-yourself and expert help by checking in frequently and offering assistance as needed. Even though his shop is 7 hours away from my home, I can’t wait to go again and take my friends. One of the guests was a lady and she also had a great time and forged a beautiful knife. My only word of caution is to be prepared to catch Brendan’s passion for blacksmithing because you may develop a sudden urge to scour the internet for your own smithing tools.

Brenden was so welcoming and knowledgeable about everything to do with forging. Gave us tips and tricks on what to do if we started this as a hobby on our own. He was very kind and welcoming and very concerned with the quality of his teaching. Absolutely would do again! We wound up all becoming friends and follow him on social media @yallhallaforge
