Villages Folk School - Beginning Blacksmithing

Date:Sep 24th, 2016 - Sep 25th, 2016
Time:9:00am - 5:00pm

Bill Printy and Mark Heisdorffer will teach workshops at the Forge and Anvil Academy, in historic Bentonsport where there are five forges for learning the fine art of taking a piece of iron, heating it up, and making a beautiful and useful item for one’s home. The Forge and Anvil Academy, where hundreds of students have learned the fine art of taking a piece of iron, and creating a beautiful and useful item, is one of a few places where artistic blacksmithing is taught in the United States. Where else can one learn to craft tools from iron at the side of an experienced artistic blacksmith in a shop with five forges? And in the words of one “village smithy” in Bentonsport, “Heat some iron—Make some stuff”
