Woodland Forge at Lutherlyn

The Woodland Forge is  designed to bring opportunities for creative expression, arts education, and new skills.

The Forge:
The Blacksmithing Forge can accommodate 4 students.  

Meals are prepared by our chef and served buffet style in our dining room.  Our chef and staff can accommodate dietary requirements as necessary.  Please include any dietary requirements with your registration form.  Our chef may contact you for additional information shortly before your visit.

The Classes:
This class is open to those brand new to the art of smithing as well as experienced students. The small size of the class allows the instructor to individualize the class to the needs of the students. It will start or continue you on the path to developing the core skills of smithing: drawing, tapering, hot cutting, hot punching, forge welding, bending, twisting, scrolls and leaves.  All materials and supplies are included.
Students must be at least 16 years of age. 

The Instructor:
Flavius Brinsfield (featured in the photo above) provides hands-on instruction in the Woodland Forge at Lutherlyn, guiding students through their blacksmithing journey.  Flavius has been shaping iron for nearly 50 years. With a love of fire, iron, and hammers he pursues the tradition of the village blacksmith. "It's fun and mesmerizing to get something hot, beat it into submission, and come up with cool stuff that is useful, practical and pretty."

All Blacksmithing Classes are 9 am - 5 pm and include lunch for $150 per person.
