Blacksmith Work Week

October 11, 2021 from 9:00 am-October 15, 2021 from 5:00 pm

We don’t actually know when this will be, but I wanted to see how a recurring event would look on the calendar!  While many of the people who come to Work Week have been coming for years and the sense of camaraderie is high, the week is really about doing what needs to get done around the Shop and the Folk School campus. Folks don’t realize that some of the people who come to work are not only blacksmiths, but other specialized technicians helping to keep the Shop running smoothly. With a large group of people focusing for one week on tasks at hand, we get many jobs done that would never get done otherwise… it’s almost 900 hours of volunteer labor condensed into one week. It’s pretty incredible! It’s a lot of fun, but also a lot of work. Check out our blog for past Blacksmith Work Weeks memories and projects.
