Was ihr unternehmen werdet

*IF YOUR PREFERRED CLASS IS FULL/UNAVAILABLE, PLEASE SEND ME A MESSAGE SO I CAN SNEAK YOU IN
*I CAN SHIP YOUR KNIFE IF YOU'RE UNABLE TO TRAVEL WITH IT

In this 3 hour class, you'll begin with a horseshoe and end with your very own, handmade knife! Absolutely no prior experience is required and is suitable for ages 8+. No lifting required and little strength necessary, though hand-eye coordination always helps (READ DISCLAIMER AT BOTTOM PRIOR TO SCHEDULING).

The curriculum is designed to flow seamlessly and be tons of fun:
1) You'll begin the class by putting on safety gear and reviewing safety procedures.
2) You'll use traditional blacksmithing equipment (forges, hammers, and anvils) to forge a knife from a horseshoe.
3) Each step will be demonstrated and guidance will be provided throughout the class.

DISCLAIMER: Participants will be using hammers to move hot steel. This implies that your arm may become sore from hammering! Don't worry, we've never had a student fail to complete a project. If you have any disabilities that may prevent you from standing and hammering for long periods of time, please let me know prior to scheduling.
Other things to note
Open-toed shoes are not allowed. Avoid synthetic pants & shirts (best to have cotton jeans & a cotton top).

NOTE: Your class may be led by either me (Max) or one of my instructors (Buddy, Spiff, Gage, Jack, Randy, or Alair).

I opened this experience with two goals in mind: First, to get you excited about blacksmithing by getting your hands dirty; Second, to facilitate the most fun you've ever had with your companions!

My passion for blacksmithing stems from a love of knife making, which I've been doing recreationally for over 18 years. Only in the last year did I make the decision to leave my career in technology to follow this calling full-time.

Wo ihr sein werdet

You'll feel as if you were transported to an old-world blacksmith shop, though you'll remain in the heartland of Seattle's industrial district known as SoDo.

The shop is a 10 minute drive south from downtown Seattle and has plenty of free parking.

We had an amazing time! Matt did a fantastic job checking on each person and helping everyone individually so we were all moving together. It was a perfect length class for a newbie and easier to complete than I expected. I felt very safe as well being properly distanced and everyone was wearing a mask. I would highly recommend!!

Got this for my husband's birthday. We had a blast with our teacher and classmates. Plus we got some awesome knives. What's not to love?

Spiff was an engaging and helpful teacher. The experience was welcoming and a lot of fun! The additional directions sent were not super helpful for folks who aren't from the area-- but the person who answered the phone when we got lost did a great job of explaining the location.

I surprised my husband and son (age 25) with this experience for Christmas. We attended the Class on Jan 10th to make a knife out of a horseshoe and none of us can get the smirk of our faces as we had so much fun!!! Our instructor Matt was AWESOME! He made sure to help each student in the class one on one and was so friendly and knowledgeable. The class size was perfect, there was 6 of us and I think that was just right. Not to crowed. And allowed Matt to work his way around the room to check/help everyone. We would love to attend again and will recommend to our friend!!

This was an amazing experience! I didn’t know what to really expect going into this but the instructor (spiff) was a fun and responsible teacher for this class. I would and am already recommending this class to everyone I know!
