Overview

This package is for that person that wants to really get a feel for the blacksmithing craft – with four hours at the anvil one-on-one blacksmithing in the forge with the local blacksmith. You’ll start the day at 1pm at FireHouse Ironworks Ltd. During your experience you can make a creative item or learn new techniques from an experienced smith. After the fire is dampened down at the forge, head up the mountain to our off-grid camping cabins and licensed lodge facility for a night in the woods. Bring a sleeping bag and something for the BBQ, enjoy a craft beer by the woodstove, and a comfortable nights rest in our heated cabins. In the morning you could hike on The Great Trail before heading down the mountain. Package includes 4 hour blacksmithing workshop for one person and accommodations in an off-grid cabin for up to two adults.
