Our 2013 Summer Session is coming to an end, its been our most successful summer ever and owe it to the support of our alumni. Let's keep up the momentum, see Winter session for other courses starting in November.
Summer Session at the New England School of Metalwork truly shines. We pride ourselves on offering you a wide array of nationally known, professional artist and craftsmen spanning all areas for you to choose from. Workshops run from 8 am to 5 pm daily with a one hour break for lunch (if you can stay away from the forge that long). Most of the blacksmithing workshops offered run 4 to 5 days in length. While in season and accessible, our Summer Session Workshops offer a dinner and slide night; we gather outside the shop for a traditional Maine Lobster bake followed by a slide presentation of the visiting instructor. What better way to replenish all those vitamins lost through hours of sweating than by having a fresh lobster and clam dinner. Visit our Student Gallery to see the wonderful groups of students and their work from past years. Safety is of great importance, a full leather shoe or boot is mandatory as well as full length pants. NESM will provide any necessary PPE needed including safety glasses, gloves, ear plugs, dust masks and face shields.
