O que você fará

Experience the ancient art of blacksmithing with this fun introductory class for beginners!

In this workshop you will learn the fundamentals of forging - sculpting hot metal with a hammer and anvil as you create your own custom iron hook! You will be working hands-on with Artist-Blacksmith Jen Lipski in her private studio located in rural Niagara.

Each participant will heat up their own piece of metal in the forge until it glows red-hot and then hammer, bend, and twist it into your own unique piece of ironwork! Don't be intimidated by the art - projects are available with varying levels of difficulty to accommodate different skill levels, and you will be guided step by step as you forge your new metal hook to take home!

While studying at university to become a wildlife painter, I unexpectedly discovered my true passion for blacksmithing and changed my whole life around it!

After graduation, I worked privately and industrially as a welder and metal fabricator before finally leaving my job to start up my own studio in 2019. Now I am living my dream, working full time as an Artist and Blacksmith from my country studio in Wainfleet Ontario.

I began teaching public workshops in the summer of 2020, sharing my passion and skills with both aspiring blacksmiths and members of the community looking for a fun and totally unique experience!

Jen is a great teacher and very personable. It is a lot of fun to try something new like blacksmithing and have something cool to show at the end of the class that you made yourself. Jen gives excellent instructions and demonstrates each and every step herself and will help you fix your mistakes and give you as much help as you want.

This was an incredible experience! It was so fun to try something hands-on that I never imagined doing before! Jen is a great teacher, has a really cool set-up, and was very generous with her time. Her gallery is pretty amazing, and includes lots of different kinds of work she's done! We got to try things out right away, with adaptations available in case things weren't working how we wanted, and Jen took us through step by step. Bonus, there's a cute pup! (plus cats and birds inside the gallery/home)

Jen has a great set up. We had lots of fun forging our own hooks and key chains. You definitely gain a respect for how difficult it is. Jen was super friendly and helpful. This was definitely a unique experience we were very happy with.
