Blacksmithing & Brews

Discover the basics of forging hot steel in our unforgettable blacksmithing workshop! You and up to five other guests will take turns at the anvil, working one-on-one with our blacksmith as he guides you through heating and hammering a piece of rough steel into a one-of-a-kind, handcrafted knife you can take home. You’ll learn the skills of knife making with Mo, Earthshine’s blacksmith and lead program instructor. Mo has twenty years of experience in outdoor education and living history, and has taught students of all ages. While he directs and demonstrates the techniques you’ll need to complete your knife, he’ll also share the legends, lore, history, and science behind the craft. Once you’ve formed the rough shape of your knife at the forge, you’ll head up to Earthshine’s Main Lodge to finish and refine your blade. We’ll provide tools, instruction, and, of course, a refreshing beverage. We offer a selection of local beers and ciders, as well as craft sodas and sparkling water. While perfecting your masterpiece, you can sip and soak in our stunning view overlooking Pisgah National Forest and the Blue Ridge Mountains. This is a beginner’s course, so no experience is needed and all equipment is provided. Ages 13+ are welcome, but you must be at least 21 to be served alcohol. Each person participating will take home their own wrought iron knife that can be used as a letter opener or simple spreading utensil. One of our custom Blacksmithing & Brews pint glasses is included... Read More
