Open Smithy
A time to do your own things

This is a chance to use your blacksmithing knowledge to work on your own projects or continue on a project begun in a class.

You are expected to have some idea about what you are doing (including cleaning the forge, lighting it, and putting it out), this is not a teaching situation.

There will be a monitor whose job it is to help keep you and the tools safe, and to know where stuff is, but the monitor is not expected to be any more helpful than that, it sometimes happens, but it's not to be expected.

If you would like to reserve a forge in a scheduled Open Smithy session, please scroll down to the date that interests you and click where it says "Click Here".

Sometimes there are classes that are marked "(space available)" on the calendar, which means that there's an open forge at which you could work on your projects whilst we conduct a class around you.
Contact us
directly if you are interested in one of those times.
(Because of the need to occasionally stop everyone hammering, we'll be appropriately generous with the accounting of OS time.)

Warning:
If you just show up, you're taking a chance that no one else reserved and we decided to sleep in/go sailing/go dancing, OR that lots of people reserved and there's no room for you.

Hours vary.    dates&times
