    I was wondering if someone who has had blacksmithing experience in the past could attend the open studio nights. Is it necessary for someone who has a few weeks of experience under their belt to take the exploration or semi private classes first?

      Hi Max, Thank you for your inquiry about the open studio nights. The reason I suggest taking a class with instruction before is so when you take the open studio you are ready to go! Although you are famiular with the studio and you are a prior student let’s pick a date and run an open studio.
