For those interested in the full three-day experience, it’s important to note that blacksmithing can be physically demanding. Participants should be prepared for the physical challenges that come with multiple days of forging. If you are not accustomed to regular physical activity, consider registering for one or two days instead.

If you plan to visit from out of town, then on-site lodging is available for just $50 per night, though space is limited. To reserve a room, please email Valerie at Valerie@moreanworkshopspace.org.

Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to learn from Leslie Tharp and immerse yourself in the ancient and rewarding craft of blacksmithing. Secure your spot today and start your journey into metal art!
