A testimonial from Enzo about our Blacksmithing courses: A few months ago I became curious about blacksmithing and began looking around for a program to get into. After a fair amount of searching I found the Beginner Blacksmithing course offered by the Milton Historical Society. It looked perfect for a novice like me. Other than watching a few episodes of Forged In Fire, I knew nothing about blacksmithing and forging. On the day of the course, as soon as the rest of the students and I walked into the smithy, I knew that I’d made the right choice by picking this program. Everything about the program and the experience was excellent; it was interesting and it was definitely fun! Even just walking into the smithy was fun; it was like stepping back in time about 100 years. The facility was perfect. The history of the smithy was preserved, and we had all of the equipment, forges, materials and tools we could have wanted to work with. There were only 4 of us in the class and we worked with 2 instructors Mike and Megan, who are professional blacksmiths and were very hands on throughout the day. Mike and Megan were great – knowledgeable, experienced, patient and they are both very nice people. This is an experience that I am so happy to have had and it is definitely something that I will continue to do. I’ve registered for the intermediate course with the Milton Historical Society and can’t wait for the nest session. If you are interested in blacksmithing or forging and want to give it a try, you’d be doing yourself a favor by taking this course. Thanks Enzo! We are glad you enjoyed yourself.
