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 . Once secured on the anvil, you will wield the hammer under the close direction of the Blacksmith.
