Starting in the spring of 2017 I have began offering private classes on bladesmithing here at my Matherton Forge shop. For 20 years I have been teaching bladesmithing at colleges and schools around the U.S. (see more here: Teaching and Consulting ). But I have found that private, one on one, classes at my own shop allow me to communicate more skills, much more effectively in a significantly shorter time. Classes are in any topic, from basic blade forging to advanced heat treating concepts, with curriculums that an be customized to your interests, a freedom not always available in public venues. Classes run from $300 to $400 per day depending on topic and materials required.
In my very long teaching career I have trained many bladesmiths from around the world who have went on to become certified Mastersmiths themselves. I look forward to helping you learn real skills from an established master of this ancient and noble craft. Feel free to contact me via e-mail or telephone for more information.
