    Open Forge

    Prerequisite: Any Discovery Class and Adam's Forge Membership  Please note: Beginning on January 1, 2024, all attendees of Open Forge sessions must have successfully passed the Forge Safety class, which is free to members and available for sign-up on the class calendar. Can't add this workshop to your cart? You can join the Membership Program here   Date: March 19, 2024 Time: 6 pm - 10 pm Location: Adam's Forge Not a class, but a swell time to get in the forge to do what you wanna do. You can bring your own material and work on your own project. This can be a chance to finish that piece you started or work out a technique you’ve been meaning to try. One of our intrepid instructors will be on hand for supervision and guidance, although these are not teaching workshops. Please note: these sessions are intended to support our students as they practice skills that are within their ability range.  Please do not use our forge and tools to experiment with new techniques that are beyond your skill level.  When in doubt, ask the instructor. As with all of our workshops, we require that students attending Open Forge sessions be at least 12 years old. A student who is not an adult (18 and older) will need to have a parent or guardian present at ALL times during the session. Thanks for thinking of safety first.
