August 20 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

$60 – $170

** Prior registration required, head to to sign up today! Limited spots available**

Join long-time Firefly Gathering instructor, Tod Kershaw, as he walks us through the ins and outs of DIY Blacksmithing, foraging for metal in the scrap heaps and so much more! This class will empower students to find metal, tools and fuel, and teach you what to do with it.

All of the materials in the class will be 100% found, foraged, reclaimed & reused…even the coal!

The class will be held in a covered outdoor space in Barnardsville, NC (30 minutes north of Asheville) on Saturday May 21, 2022 from 11am – 5pm.
