Note: Prospect Hill Forge is physically closed for the duration of the pandemic.
If you have your own set-up please consider one of our online classes.

Forge-to-Go
We bring the smithy to you.

We bring one or more of our mobile smithing set-ups, all materials and safety gear to your place and set up outside.
(We have a decent fly for cover in the event of rain or excessive sun)

We can arrange to do any of our usual classes, from A Taste of Blacksmithing to The DIY Off-the-Grid Guerilla Patternwelded Billet or a class/lesson/session to suit the student(s) needs, interests, and abilities.

With one forge we can accommodate one or two students who are from the same epidemiologic bubble/pod/unit. It is possible to bring an additional forge for additional students, but all should be from the same bubble (see below).

Most aspects of this experience are negotiable.

This is a privately-arranged class, Forge-to-Go sessions listed below have been scheduled by someone for themselves.
If you are here to register for a session, please be sure you are doing so for the right one.

If you'd like to discuss scheduling a Forge-to-Go session, please call Carl at 781 81oxide (781 816 9433) after 10am.
Calling is best, emails and texts can get lost in the flood.
