Forging On: Open Shop Project Time –  A collaboration between the Folk School and Calypso Farm and Ecology Center

This is a NEW class style based on the Open Shop idea.  Registration is still required.  In this Forging Session we will have the freedom to work on your own project or just practice your blacksmithing skills.  The Instructor will be on hand to help and consult with you.  This is a great opportunity to practice those previously learned skills and to get creative.

(*The Blacksmithing Overview is a prerequisite class.)
