Basic Blacksmithing and Knife Making Classes
A two day class with an experienced Blacksmith,
Bladesmith, and Farrier, Steve Wayne Papoojian
As a new desire to turn back to a simpler more self sustained way of life emerges in our society, people have begun to look back to the original ways of making things. Heather's Heart Forge was opened to help bring knowledge and understanding to a unique craft. Classes are taught by Steve Wayne, an experienced, award winning blacksmith, farrier, and bladesmith with close to 40 years of experience. Steve is also a member of the American Bladesmith Society.
The course is a 2 day, 8 hour per day experience that includes lunch both days. (Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions or special needs so we can accommodate your needs). Students will leave with knowledge of basic forging, safety techniques, an understanding of the machines used, usage of both a coal and propane forge, and a completed knife. A full curriculum is available for those seeking to add a technology component to home schooling. Classes are kept small to provide 1 on 1 learning. Guest instructors are sometimes brought in to provide more information on different styles of bladesmithing. We are a fully insured shop and take safety seriously.
We also provide services to teach basic welding, and wood turning in which you can create your own pen or bowl. All materials are provided for all students.
