kids blacksmithing class


Here’s one for the kiddos! Beginners Blacksmithing with Kids is a simple and instructional hands-on activity you and your child are sure to enjoy together. During this 2 hour class, at Cleveland Blacksmithing in Ohio City, we’ll start by covering shop safety and then you and your child will both learn basic forging skills by working with hammers and tongs at the anvil to create a classic blacksmith’s hook to take home and enjoy.

Grown ups handle hot iron, kids get to hammer. It’s a win-win!

  • No experience necessary
  • Cost includes all steel, fuel, and other shop supplies involved in introductory instruction
