  1. Hello. I am a high school student from Rhode Island and in order to graduate, I need to complete a senior project. I chose blacksmithing as my topic. I need a mentor to do this. The only requirement, to my knowledge, is completing a background check. If any users are in Rhode Island and would be so kind as to help me, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.
  2. Hi All I have "dabbled" in blacksmithing. and i use a home made coal forge, and old antique anvil. I am seeking knowledgable people in my area that would like to start getting together and working together on projects. I would prefer people more knowledgable then me(which wont be to hard to find...lol) but someone just starting out like me is great too. I live in Southern IL on the Missouri border. About an hour or so south of st louis. If anyone is in this area or knows of people who are. That wouldnt mind taking on a new person thats wanting to learn. Please let me know.
  3. I am looking for a Blacksmithing school in my area or a mentor in my area to help me get into blacksmithing. I am located in Copperas Cove Texas, which is right outside Fort Hood. I am looking for a school that will accept my G.I. Bill, or a mentor who would be willing to teach me the basics. I am on a limited budget due to being medically retired from the military, so I cannot afford to pay much out of pocket to a mentor. I would like to learn the trade in a proper environment before I try to make my own forge. Any references would be much appreciated, everything I have turned up has been about 45 min of driving time or more away from my location and that would be too difficult of a commute financially to go to school. Thanks in advance for any advice or resources you can help me with.
