How much is the tuition and deposit to sign up for your basic class and are there any prerequisites?
Thank you for your interest in our school and swordsmithing classes.
Our five-day Basic Forging Course costs a total of $1,350, with a deposit of $350 required to reserve one’s space in a session.
There are no prerequisites for the Basic Forging Course. It has been our experience that those without any experience blacksmithing or bladesmithing generally perform at least as well as those with prior experience.
