Join us in the forge to learn how fire, metal and a hammer come together to create a decorative S hook! Our experienced blacksmith will teach you a few tricks of the trade in this special WOMEN ONLY edition of our popular introductory blacksmith class. Topics covered will include forge safety, tools, and fire building, and you will have an opportunity to work on a first project. No experience necessary! This program is for ages 18 and up. Blandford Nature Center will provide safety equipment, including gloves and ear and eye protection.

Member: $100
Non-Member: $120

This program is only for ages 18 and up.

Registration closes on November 18th, 2022. Please contact Visitor Services at 616-735-6240 if you are attempting to register after this date. 

Please Note: This program will be held indoors.  It is also recommended to dress for the weather - our forge is inside an unheated, drafty building. Long shirts and pants and heavy duty, closed-toe shoes are also recommended for your safety. We suggest non-synthetic clothing for protection from sparks. If you do not have non-synthetic clothing, we can provide a leather apron. Please also bring a water bottle with you.
