Blacksmithing & Brews

From: $95.00

Experience the basics of shaping hot steel with a hammer and anvil in our unforgettable Blacksmithing & Brews workshop. No experience is necessary as our instructor will guide you every step of the way in this basics of blacksmithing program, helping you work a piece of rough steel into a one of a kind, hand crafted knife form you can take home. After the workshop, you can enjoy a local brew on the front deck of our main lodge overlooking Pisgah National Forest and the Blue Ridge. Also included is a take-home kit with a few essential tools you can use to turn your project into a piece of art worth displaying. Bring a few friends and spend a fall afternoon metal working and enjoying local brews. 

Ages 13+ are welcome, but you must be at least 21 to be served beer. If you’re under 21, we’ll provide lemonade, tea or sparkling water. Each person participating will take home their own wrought iron crude knife form that can be used as a letter opener or simple spreading utensil. 

Reservations are required to reserve your spot for the Blacksmithing & Brews experience.

If these dates and times do not work for you, private workshops are available per request and depending on availability. This is a great experience for wedding parties or birthdays!
