Remote Private Class
We bring the smithy to you

We bring one 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 unit. It is possible to bring an additional forge for additional students (see below).

Most aspects of this experience are negotiable.
