Beginner Classes

Brown County Forge Blacksmithing Classes

This is a 2-3 hour class covering the basic skills of drawing out, upsetting, hot cutting, quenching, and scrolling. You will have the opportunity to complete a unique project to take home. Past projects have been fire pokers, wall hooks, S hooks, bottle openers, and keychains.

This is a great class for bachelor parties, birthday gifts, anniversary gifts (we’ve had two Iron Anniversaries celebrated at the forge), father-son outings, and company outings. Read more about what Taking a Class is like step-by-step.

Class photos and videos are available on Facebook.

Class size: 1-4 people. This is a great class to take with a friend or relative. There’s plenty of time to integrate the skills, work on your own, and compare your projects.

Class Fee: $110/person ($100 if paid by Check)

Contact: Email Terran at browncountyforge@gmail.com with your name, possible class dates, and a little bit about yourself. He’ll get back to you within 24 hours. Look for an email from BC Forge.

[Terran is] a good teacher. It takes having that gift to do it well. – David B.

This is a 4 hour class covering the basics of hand-forging a knife from common materials (rebar, railroad spikes). We’ll go through proper hammering technique, hardening, tempering, grinding, and finishing.

You will leave the class with a usable knife to take home.
