Please register for the blacksmithing classes by event. We are not able to combine registrations due to class size limitations. If you are planning to take a full suite of classes, you will need to register for each class separately. We recommend completing registrations at the same time to reserve your space across all classes. Registrations above are organized by event (Taste of Blacksmithing, Open Forge, then Fundamentals) and by date for each type.
