Primitive Pit Forge Building & Blacksmithing

nhan-2-smallWe’ll be building four primitive pit forges implementing many of the same methods common to tribal blacksmiths in Iron Age Africa that are still used today.

Using earth, clay, water and ashes we will construct simple forges, complete with bag bellows, then fire them up the traditional way using flint and steel.

Students will then have the opportunity to forge a small project to take home.

This class is suitable for children over 5 years of age with a registered adult.

Cancellation and Refund Policies

A great deal of staff time and expense is invested into the preparation and organization of individual classes. It is difficult and oftentimes impossible to recover costs and/or find a student to replace a cancelled registrant and so our cancellation and refund policies reflect this. Full refunds, minus $15 administrative fee for single day classes and a $30 admin fee for multi-day classes, are given to registrants who cancel with at least 7 days notice of the event. Cancellations made less than 7 days of the event forfeit a refund.

We understand that emergencies and unforeseen circumstances do happen.As such we offer the courtesy of transferring your fees to a different class within six months of the originally scheduled class minus the respective admin fee. For example, a single day $50 workshop cancelled the day before may be transferred to a multi-day $100 workshop the following month. The total balance due would be $60 ($100 multi day – $50 single day transfer + $10 single day admin fee). Cancellations made within 24 hours of the scheduled class start time and no-shows, forfeit the option of a fee transfer however a 20% off voucher may be given towards your next class of equal value.
