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!

Her skal du være

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!

We had such a great afternoon in Jen’s workshop! We were all a little nervous at first to be working with such hot metals, but Jen was a great teacher and made us feel confidant in creating our hooks. The tour of her studio was a great way to end our workshop! Highly recommend!

Jen was extremely kind, patient and accommodating. The guidance she gave was provided in manageable chunks and there was plenty of opportunity to try out the different techniques she showed us as we created our pieces. She was great with my 12-year-old daughter, stepping in when necessary, but still empowering her to maintain her independence. In the end, we all ended up with some great pieces and had a great time. Thank you Jen!

Jen is a great teacher and very personable. It is a lot of fun to try something new like blacksmithing and have something cool to show at the end of the class that you made yourself. Jen gives excellent instructions and demonstrates each and every step herself and will help you fix your mistakes and give you as much help as you want.

This was an incredible experience! It was so fun to try something hands-on that I never imagined doing before! Jen is a great teacher, has a really cool set-up, and was very generous with her time. Her gallery is pretty amazing, and includes lots of different kinds of work she's done! We got to try things out right away, with adaptations available in case things weren't working how we wanted, and Jen took us through step by step. Bonus, there's a cute pup! (plus cats and birds inside the gallery/home)
