School/Class input needed

Recommended Posts

Question for the group mind out there,

I am largely a self-taught smith, couple weekend classes here and there. I would classify myself as an intermediate beginner. I am looking to take a weeklong intensive course at one of the many schools around the country. I will be flying in from the west coast, renting a car and driving to the school. I think some have on site dormitories, and all probably provide lodging recommendations.

Who has taken what, where, and how have your experiences been?

 I think the immersive experience of such a class, combined with finally having a home shop to help lock in the techniques once I get back will really move my skills forward

Thanks for any input

Brian

Last I heard Frank was recovering from health issues. I haven't looked to see if his school is still active.

I am a member of the NWBA and attend their monthly events and conferences. I'm just looking for an excuse to travel to a different part of the country.
