Learn smithing, welding, casting and more! Click here and find a class that works for your schedule. If you are new to smithing or welding, try one of our Foundations or MIG classes. In fact, since we have small class sizes and tailor each visit to where your skills are at, you can take the All Levels class multiple times and work on progressively more difficult skills.
Looking for a one-on-one training session that mirrors what you see in Rounds 1 & 2 of the History Channel's show Forged In Fire? Sign up for this challenge and spend 3-hours on the clock! Add a Round 2 challenge to finish out the challenge by grinding and getting a handle on in just two hours.
You will join one of the smiths at Kilroy's Workshop, home forge to more Forged In Fire participants than anywhere else, and recreate a challenge from the show. Forge a blade using San Mai, cannister, or random pieces of spring steel from our bone yard and forge an awesome blade. You and the Kilroy's instructor will both forge knives according to your desired style, and you will quench in the three hours allowed for the challenge.
At the end of the challenge you keep both your blade and the knife your instructor forged! You can add a handle and grind at home, or schedule Makerspace time at Kilroy's to finish out the handle. If you want to put yourself on the clock again, schedule a second 2-hour ROUND 2 challenge to do handle and grinding and see what it's like to finish a monster blade in 5-hours.
We work with both our youth and adults to figure out the best path to achieve your goals, and we develop a growth plan WITH you. That acts as a roadmap from week to week so you hit your objectives, and we can guide you down the right path.
