Welcome to the fourm! Do you know you live in the same area/town as one of the Best Master Blacksmiths on the planet? His name is George Dixon. Geroge was the last Master Smith at Samuel Yellin Ironworks when it closed. He's in your neck of the woods. If I were you, I'd find him and see if the shop floors needed sweeping, get you foot in that door and just watch that guy work. Also you ain't that far from John C. Campbell Folk School if you wanted to take some classes.
