Twisted metal bottle opener blacksmith class

Bottle Opener

Begin with a rod of steel and make your very own functional bottle opener! Learn an exciting array of techniques such as twisting, bending, scrolling, and tapering hot steel. If anyone in your group doesn’t drink alcohol, we’ll help them make a towel/coat hook instead.

Least physical of all options.

Horseshoe Knife Forging Seattle

Horseshoe Knife

Begin with half a horseshoe and walk away with the coolest knife you’ve ever seen! Perfect for a steak knife, paring knife, or box cutter. In case it’s not enough to forge a knife, you’ll also use some super fun power tools such as belt sanders.

$80 per Adult | $40 per Child

Most fulfilling and exciting of all options simply because you’ll see a horseshoe transform into a beautiful knife. Great option if you enjoy a bit of critical thinking and something truly unique.
