I searched and I couldn't find anything without bumping an old thread, but I want an apprenticeship so bad. My ancestors were blacksmiths back when it was a necessity, and the two times I have been near a forge the hammer and tongs felt like an extension of my arms. I want so badly to be a blacksmith and apprenticeships are very few and far between where I live. This is the only thing I have ever felt passionate about and I feel that it is something that I have to do to be satisfied and fulfilled with the work I do. I have always believed in asking those more experienced for advice, and I wanted any advice that anyone could give me. Thanks in advance.
