Bill Printy and Mark Heisdorffer will teach workshops at the Forge and Anvil Academy, in historic Bentonsport where there are five forges for learning the fine art of taking a piece of iron, heating it up and making a beautiful and useful item for one’s home.

The Forge and Anvil Academy is one of a few places where artistic blacksmithing is taught in the United States. Where else can one learn to craft tools from iron at the side of an experienced artistic blacksmith in a shop with five forges?
