About the event

We will teach this class at an introduction level, however you are making the equivalent of two knives that will need to be fairly exact to function properly.

Lunch from Sonny's BBQ included.

For any class you must wear natural fabric (cotton) long trousers and closed toe shoes (leather is best). Long sleeve natural fabric shirt is recommended as bare arms can get stung by scale on occasion. Other required safety gear is provided however if you have a leather apron you may want to bring it (we sell aprons if interested).

Age 12 and up, but if under 18 your parent or guardian must be present to sign a waiver (and maybe stay around to help as a striker). Call 850-974-1548 if you have any questions. After the introduction class you can branch out to other classes enabling you to tackle various intermediate and advanced projects, something different is offered every week at Traditions Workshop - hardware, tool making, homeware items and, yes, knives.
