Get in the holiday spirit with Rivers of Steel!
This three-hour introductory workshop is a great way to explore the art of blacksmithing and create a unique holiday ornament. Participants will learn the basics of forging steel and use essential blacksmithing tools to shape the metal into a tree or leaf design to take home. These sessions are led by Rivers of Steel staff artist and bladesmith Jared Ondovchik (aka Artifact Metalworks).
This workshop is offered on November 10, and December 8, 2024.
*Workshops are limited to 12 participants. We recommend purchasing tickets in advance as we cannot guarantee tickets will be available for walk-ups.
