This is not a demonstration!
This is the ultimate immersive historical experience. Blacksmithing requires knowledge of Art; Chemistry; History; Mathematics; Geometry; and Physics, just to get started! We welcome children 6 years and up to join us in the forge for an authentic blacksmith apprentice experience. Our Blacksmith will maintain proper heating and control of the heated piece (child will not come in contact with the forge). Once secured, your little apprentice will wield the hammer under the close direction of the Blacksmith.
