I've never forged.  Can I make a knife?

Absolutely you can!  Enroll in one of our beginner classes and start your path to becoming a maker!

Is it dangerous to forge?

Dealing with hot metal and power equipment entails some risk.  If you stay focused and follow safety instructions, then the risks are minimized.

I'm enrolled in a class.  What should I wear?

Shirts should be cotton or canvas; no nylon or rayon.  Jeans, and pair of leather shoes are also recommended.  A leather apron is very much recommended, and a pair of leather work gloves.  You should also bring safety glasses and a water bottle.

Should I pack a lunch for my class?

Restaurants are available nearby, but many students do bring their own food.  We do have a refrigerator for storing your food.
