Our Forge

Dragon’s Breath Forge is committed to creating the most technically and aesthetically pleasing items that we possibly can. To that end, we are constantly experimenting, researching, and collaborating with others to hone our craft.

One of our goals is to bring educational (and entertaining!) videos to the wider community and share our expertise and love for the trade with aspiring smiths from around the globe. As part of that effort, we have started a Patreon page to host a variety of video tutorials. We already have several free videos there and will be adding more over the coming years. There will always be some available for free, while others will be exclusive to those who choose to support us in our efforts. The more support we get the more content we will be able to provide! We hope you will take a few minutes to check it out!

Private classes

Many people enjoy the experience of working with an instructor with a group of friends, and the best way to set up such courses is to contact us directly.  We can schedule Private Classes ranging from 3 to 14 students.  Groups larger than 7 students require two instructors, however, so may be more complicated to schedule! For reference, our Private Classes start at $90/hr (plus tax) for up to three students. For example, a Private version of our 6-hr “Intro to Bladesmithing” class would cost a total of $574.29 for up to three students. To schedule a private class, contact usAt the present time, we are not accepting additional single or two-person tutorials due to an excessive workload.

Payment/Cancellation Policy
Payment is due upon registration and your spot will not be reserved until payment has been received in full. Changes or cancellations 21 days before scheduled class are fully transferable to other classes or merchandise. Changes in the 20-10 days prior range get 50% transfer. Cancellations with 10 days or less are non-transferable (but may be granted to another eligible student). Classes canceled by Dragons Breath forge due to bad weather or instructor absence will be rescheduled or refunded.
