Blacksmiths were once as important to a community as the doctor. They provided everything from the nails needed to build a house to the forks used to eat.

At FireHouse Ironworks you can apprentice with local blacksmith Grant Haverstock and experience what it was like to work in a traditional blacksmith shop.

After a safety demonstration and basic forge safety instruction, try your hand at the heritage craft of blacksmithing. You will leave with a small item that you have made.

Cost per person $100 for 2 hour session and $160 for a 3-4 hour session
