Blacksmith Training

For Industry and Individuals

Blacksmith training is for individuals who want to learn a few basic techniques or an organization wanting to upgrade their employees’ in-house industry skills.

I can customize a workshop to suit your needs.

Whether it’s fabricating, blacksmithing, welding, tempering, metallurgy, punching, etc., we’ll create a project appropriate for your level of expertise.

Training content is based on our conversations about your training requirements.

You may want to create an artistic object or a tool for practical use.

Anything is possible.

Together we’ll figure out the right approach for you.

After 22 years teaching students at UBC’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, I can teach and adapt the training for the individual or company.

For Organizations

If your business needs employees trained or their skills upgraded, I will meet with you to evaluate the situation and develop a flexible and workable program.

Once we determine the content, I will present a quote for your approval.

I deliver training on the industry site when the business has the equipment and space for teaching.

My shop can accommodate 2 people at a time for specialized personal attention and training.

Contact me to schedule a conversation or a visit to your site.

For Individuals

We begin a safety orientation whether you are a beginner or not so that our time together is a good experience for all of us.

For safety reasons, you will need appropriate footwear. 

I provide everything else at my studio.

I am insured to teach individuals for workshops up to a maximum of 2 people at a time in my shop.

The fee for private or semi-private classes is $120 per hour per student and does not include materials or consumables, which are additional costs.

Contact me by phone, in person or through email to discuss and evaluate your needs at 604-910-6427 or email me at

You can also attach a photo of your project if you already have one and attach it to a text message.
