I'm a self-taught blacksmith from Tallahassee, FL. Metal has always been my preferred medium. I also teach knife and tomahawk throwing, but I definitely prefer to provide an environment for learning, so a student can teach themselves, than outline my exact preferences, or force a person to learn my way.
At my Campus in Centerville Arkansas, The Earth Horse Institute, we teach a skill set that involves making every single tool needed to forge, cook, build everything we teach, including but not
Limited to ;
Artisanal Bread Baking
Workshops available To anyone not enrolled, at least once a month.
This program offers no certifications, no degrees or accolades beyond a touchmark received upon graduation, allowing the student to sell items produced on our online store, Indefinitely.

We don't believe in pieces of paper that claim skill. We don't believe that a person needs to go buy things that can be made by hand, nor the idea that its sustainable to rely on anyone but yourself regarding the supply of your food.
It all Takes WORK!
But Work is something I can say we believe in, way more than a degree.
