This weekend we had an amazing time with a group of five veterans who gathered at Kilroy’s Workshop in Colorado Springs to learn the fundamentals of blacksmithing. Our Master Blacksmith Ron Hardman took his time to make sure everyone understood the safety procedures and what the class would entail. They learned a little bit about the history of blacksmithing and were shown some skills and techniques. The group then applied what they learned towards creating a Viking knife to take home with them. Thank you to our partners at Kilroy’s for providing the opportunity for our participants to experience this activity!

We hosted a blacksmithing class this past weekend at Kilroy's Workshop with a group of Veterans learning the fundamentals. Our Master Blacksmith, Ron Hardman, took his time to make sure everyone understood the class and safety protocols. Not only did they learn about Blacksmithing but everyone got to put into practice what they were shown and forged their own piece of steal into a knife to take home with them!
