shop news



AUGUST 17, 2019 10am-4pm

This year we will be a stop on the Ohio City line of SPARX City Hop in partnership with the Cuyahoga Arts & Culture and The Downtown Cleveland Alliance. Lolly the Trolly will be bringing by participants throughout the day to view the shop as part of their tour. They are providing giveaways and a walking musician for entertainment. If anyone wants to come in and work - meaning we’d like to show off a busy shop that day - it will be a FREE work day for all members. No room for big projects, but definitely plenty of anvil time. There’s no need to commit to a timeframe, but we sure would appreciate anyone who can come by and swing a hammer for the crowd!

Trade for Shop Time?


Going into the new year, we’d love to offer the opportunity to practice functional shop skills to those interested in assisting Gavin during a Beginners Blacksmithing class in trade for free shop time during member nights.

Assisting during a class includes things like measuring and cutting stock, drilling holes, filing, using the torches, waxing and finishing, racking hammers, fetching and re-homing tools, and of course, chatting and laughing with all kinds of folks. {fine print: you may be asked to sweep!}

While we haven’t worked through the details quite yet, we would love to know who’s interested. If that’s you, just add your name to the form below and we’ll get in touch once we have more info.
