Wat je gaat doen

Blacksmithing & Brews
Here’s your chance to experience the basics of shaping hot steel with a hammer and anvil in our unforgettable blacksmithing workshop. You’ll fire up the forge with our seasoned educator Mo, who’s been teaching hands-on living history at Earthshine for over sixteen years. He’ll guide you every step of the way, helping you work a piece of rough steel into a one of a kind, hand crafted knife form you can take home. You’ll stoke the coal fire, hammer glowing metal straight from forge, and learn all kinds of history, lore, techniques, and tricks about the craft.
After the workshop, you can enjoy a local brew on the front deck of our main lodge overlooking Pisgah National Forest and the Blue Ridge Mountains. You can take it easy, soaking up the mountain views while you sip, or work on refining your knife to transform its rugged, fresh-out-of-the-fire look to a smoother, cleaner finish. (We’ll provide the tools!)
No experience is needed and all equipment is provided. Ages 13+ are welcome, but you must be at least 21 to be served beer. If you’re under 21, we’ll provide root beer or sparkling water. Each person participating will take home their own wrought iron crude knife form that can be used as a letter opener or simple spreading utensil.

Our blacksmithing instructor, Moriah, has been teaching living history at Earthshine Lodge for over 17 years. He teaches, not only the basics of blacksmithing, but also the history and context around the art. Passionate about both blacksmithing and storytelling, Mo is a wealth of knowledge about the local area as well.

Waar je naartoe gaat

The living village at Earthshine Lodge was built as an educational village. Thousands of school age children have come through the "Pioneer Village" over the past 30 years to learn about North Carolina and American history. Kids are able to learn homesteading skills such as weaving, candle-making, blacksmithing, etc., by getting hands-on in the Pioneer Village. Now, adults can join in the fun with Blacksmithing & Brews.

My son and I had a great time with Mo coaching us through the process of crafting a couple of beautiful knives from rebar. It is definitely worth the experience if you have 3 hours to spend getting a small taste of blacksmithing. Mo imparted a wealth of historic knowledge throughout the time. We highly recommend it.

So much fun. The instructor helps you every step of the way to make sure nothing goes wrong but not enough that you don’t get contribute. A wonderful way to spend the afternoon.

Carefully planned and executed by everyone involved. A fun way to learn about blacksmithing; interesting and engaging. My husband is more interested in actually learning about this as a hobby than I am, but we both had fun. He felt challenged enough for a first-timer, and I felt supported enough to enjoy the experience. And you get to come home with knives you made!

Ali was a great guide and Mo, the blacksmith, was great at telling stories and educating as my family made knives. I will definitely encourage others coming to the Brevard location to make a stop here.

Very fun Blacksmith experience. This is a "one of a kind" experience chalked full with the hands-on hammering on steel, discussion on technique, history and storytelling. Really fun way to spend the afternoon.

This was so fun. Everyone at the lodge is so nice. we had a great private class with Moriah, just my husband and I, for our 10 year wedding anniversary. We each made slightly different knives. After forging, we sat up at the lodge for some great local beer, a great sunset, and time to work on our knives every further. We each received a take home kit to help us continue to create more on our knives. I definitely want to go back for the Llama hike!
