Construction, start to finish of a home gas forge. Class size and pace was just right. Despite my limited experience, I learned on the job and was always engaged with the projectbut never outpaced or confused.

A very enjoyable class resulting in a really useful tool! Well run and well equipped, I'd recommend this class to anyone who wants to start doing some forging in their own backyard.
