“Under a spreading chestnut-tree The village smithy stands; The smith, a mighty man is he, With large and sinewy hands; And the muscles of his brawny arms Are strong as iron bands.”

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


Our Mission

We provide a safe and skilled educational forge to allow people to explore the craft of the blacksmith. Our classes range in skill from people who have never picked up a hammer to those who have been forging for years and need some refreshing. Let us help you forge your dreams.

Who we are- Sean Crane, Artisan Blacksmith

Having forged for years, exploring different skills from basic metal working to forge welding, jewelry to damascus, hooks to swords, Sean saw the lack of a broad educational forge in the Northern VA area that focused primarily on teaching newcomers the craft. Firing up his forge, bringing his craft to new eyes, new hands, new hearts has been his dream, now being realized.
