Ever watched someone making a sword in the movies and thought it looked too cool for school? If so, this class is for you! During a 4-5 hour class (9-2pm), you'll choose a wood sword blank cut in one of several Bronze Age designs and carefully finish it on a belt sander
Note: kids and adults both take this class. There is no upper or lower age limit, but due to the challenge level of this activity, participants 7 or younger must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who will assist them. And you wouldn't be alone--it is common to have as many adults as kids attend this class to cast a sword.
Is there a minimum age requirement to take the class?
Kids as young as 7 can take the class as long as they have an adult to help them. And you wouldn't be alone--it is common to have almost as many adults as kids come to experience this amazing process!
How many tickets do I need?
The cost of the class is per sword cast, not per participant, so it depends if mom or dad want to cast their own sword.
I like to do woodworking--can I make a sword ahead of time and bring it to class to cast?
Yes, some of the coolest swords we've seen have come along this way. If you want to try this, email me for dimensions and a few sword design rules of thumb.
Can adults come without a kid?
Sure! They do all the time!
