Blacksmithing Classes

Anacortes, Washington


Welcome to Thorne Metals Studio

Many individuals are interested in learning blacksmithing as a worthwhile pastime or profession.  The techniques, tools and items made by the smith are an essential part of our history. Historically, all crafts relied on the blacksmith for their tools and durable materials. Becoming a modern day smith is difficult because there are very few teachers qualified to teach blacksmithing. Master blacksmith Paul Thorne teaches aspiring smiths this trade based on his many years as a full time working architectural smith and instructor.
