Event Description

Hear the bellows blow and watch hot iron worked by hammer at Blacksmithing Weekend. Demonstrating traditional tool and hardware making, blacksmiths working on three forges will show the versatility of the blacksmith's craft. Fun awaiting families includes talking to the farrier as Zeb the horse gets new shoes. Children can experience "blacksmithing" with clay. Families can take a class to build a wooden toolbox with forged nails and locally sourced wood!
The weekend is included with regular museum admission.
