Have you been forging for a little while or just beginning and would love to get started in the right direction to be profitable? Just profitable enough to have some funds for tools or equipment?

          This workshop will be conducted and geared towards just that. What to do and how to do it, saving time but creating clean presentable work as well as dozens of other Pro-tips that you need to turn a profit doing simple work on a small scale. Significant amounts of time will still be used to strengthen your 7 core processes but we will only focus on a small number of items to make. The material presented will only focus on shop tasks, processes and techniques. Students will also gain huge time savings and knowledge through various tools, forms and techniques on how to effectively use them to save time yet produce good work. With bits of knowledge I have stumbled across about blacksmithing for a living, students will gain years.

The other end of business is for the pros as I am not a CPA or IRS representative.

          Granted it can take years to become proficient enough, but getting started in the right direction with the right mentality will shave a lot of time off. Heat, beat and REPEAT !
