Guided Open Smithy
A little help on your project.

This is a time to work on your own projects with an experienced smith at hand to help work out ideas, techniques, and approaches.

The experienced smith may be working on something of their own during this session, but their priority is to be there for the students. Feel free to interrupt them at any time.

Gift Certificates for Guided Open Smithy are available.
