What you'll do

Experience the ancient art of blacksmithing with this fun introductory class for beginners!

In this workshop you will learn the fundamentals of forging - sculpting hot metal with a hammer and anvil as you create your own custom iron hook! You will be working hands-on with Artist-Blacksmith Jen Lipski in her private studio located in rural Niagara.

Each participant will heat up their own piece of metal in the forge until it glows red-hot and then hammer, bend, and twist it into your own unique piece of ironwork! Don't be intimidated by the art - projects are available with varying levels of difficulty to accommodate different skill levels, and you will be guided step by step as you forge your new metal hook to take home!

While studying at university to become a wildlife painter, I unexpectedly discovered my true passion for blacksmithing and changed my whole life around it!

After graduation, I worked privately and industrially as a welder and metal fabricator before finally leaving my job to start up my own studio in 2019. Now I am living my dream, working full time as an Artist and Blacksmith from my country studio in Wainfleet Ontario.

I began teaching public workshops in the summer of 2020, sharing my passion and skills with both aspiring blacksmiths and members of the community looking for a fun and totally unique experience!

Nestled in beautiful rural Niagara, my spacious studio is surrounded by greenhouses and farmers fields. We are minutes from the local chocolate shop, and just a short drive to the beaches of Lake Erie, shopping, wineries, Balls Falls, and of course - Niagara Falls!

The workshop is located at the back of our property, and parking is available on the grass. Before you leave, finish off your experience with a free tour of our Art Studio Gallery!

Jen has a great set up. We had lots of fun forging our own hooks and key chains. You definitely gain a respect for how difficult it is. Jen was super friendly and helpful. This was definitely a unique experience we were very happy with.
