Dreamingofsmithing

Super newbie looking to start learning the craft

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone. 

I am very pleased I found this site, I live in Anchorage and have been wanting for a long time to get in the craft of black smithing. I want to finally start this instead of putting it off for another year. Is there any classes near Anchorage for beginners, any one doing any training?  Other then reading books and watching videos I don't have any hands on experince. I would like to attend the next meeting for the community, not sure when and where that would be.  I am interesting in learning skills and have really no idea other then here where to start other then posting this. 

Thank you for your time.

Happy New Year,

There are quite a few in the Blacksmith group for your area. Frosty is in Palmer as well as a few others. I think they had a meeting/get together last weekend.

They will answer you, here, when they are on-line.

I forgot, put your location in your Avatar. Welcome to our world!!

Neil
