Come learn the art of blacksmithing in historic downtown Comer, GA. Certified artist blacksmith Patrick Blount is now offering classes in basic blacksmithing at the Greenhow Handmade Ironworks, LLC shop located at 1939 Madison Street. All classes will focus on a particular project that the student should be able to finish in the day’s course, all while learning basic blacksmithing processes. Classes are open to students 13 years of age and older. Students under the age of 18 will need a parent or guardian to sign the release for them. Classes start at 9:00 AM and run to around 4:00 PM with a 1 hour lunch break. There are many restaurants within walking distance of the shop, or feel free to pack your lunch and eat at the city park that the shop backs up to. All courses include all materials and tools. However, if you own your own tools, please feel free to bring them so you can practice working with your own tools.
