Blacksmithing & Brews
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 Mountains. You can take it easy, soaking up the mountain views while you sip, or work on refining your knife to transform its rugged, fresh-out-of-the-fire look to a smoother, cleaner finish. (We’ll provide the tools!)
Ages 13+ are welcome, but you must be at least 21 to be served beer. If you’re under 21, we’ll provide root beer or sparkling water. (If you are interested in reserving for someone under 13 years old, ask about our Blacksmithing Basics program). 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.
