Apprentice in the craft and folklore of blacksmithing 1 weekend a month. Train with our Artisans Guild and learn to blacksmith at the Trackers forge by fire, hammer, and anvil.

The Artisans Guild
As a Blacksmithing Apprentice you join our Artisans Guild. Our best educators and returning students guide Apprentices as they learn as a team.
The Blacksmithing Apprenticeship
Apprentices work together as part of a powerful learning team. They connect with like-minded peers while building authentic skills and sharing a deep relationship with nature. This is not just a club, this can be a life-long path of study in an ancient arts.
