Paris, Tn: Need Help Finding A Person or Institution to Teach Me My Passion


Recommended Posts

I am a senior in my high school year. I am wanting to need to set up plans for after high school. My one passion is to become a Blacksmith, but I don't know of any institutions or people to learn from.

This is the only thing that I want to do with my life, and really wanting/needing someone to help me, please.

You are not to far from Adams TN:  Possum Trot Forge – Meets the last Sunday of each month at 1:00 pm at the Adams Museum behind the old Bell School building on Highway 41 in Adams TN.  John Williams 615-696-8390.  The AACB  http://aacblacksmiths.org is the Tennessee affiliate of ABANA  www.abana.org.  You might want to look into going to college at Tennessee Tech and take the Fine Arts Major and take the blacksmithing courses at Appalachian Center for the Craft https://www.tntech.edu/craftcenter/.  Or you might want to look into work studies at the John C. Campbell Folk School www.folkschool.org. near Murphy, NC at Brasstown, NC.

Let me know if I can help you.  I prefer e-mails over PMs.
