We are an ornamental ironwork shop and blacksmithing school located near Portland, Oregon. We create custom high-quality, hand-forged ironwork, railings, gates, fireplace tools, screens, and hardware. In our blacksmithing classes, we teach basic forge work as well as more advanced skills- all depending on the studentís ability and interests.

While we love sharing our craft with others, we donít always have time for people to just drop in for tours, we also donít have a showroom or retail shop. If you have questions regarding classes, or an ironwork project, please contact us at:
Basic Blacksmithing Techniques with an intro to knife making.

The basic class is an introduction to the forge; heating steel; the basic techniques; and creating a functional tool from scratch. The classes are 95% hands-on for the student with lots of anvil and hammer time.
