Lake Champlain Maritime Museum

Discover the magic of moving hot metal! Learn the basic skills (including everything from hammer control and fire maintenance to forge welding), through simple and practical projects. Individualized instruction to help you feel strong, confident, and comfortable in the workshop. Open to all skill levels, abilities, and genders.

9:30 am – 4:30 pm, Satuday and Sunday, March 18 & 19, 2017

Please bring a lunch, water, closed toed shoes, long pants, and preferably clothing made from natural fibers. Dress warm for winter workshops! The forge will warm up over the day, but start out chilly.

About your instructor:

Caitlin hangs out with the misfits and scallywags. She sings loudly and out of tune. She is partial to walks in the rain. But the most important thing is this: Caitlin loves blacksmithing.

The Vermont native runs Ms. Caitlin’s School in Maryland, which is dedicated to sharing the craft with as many unsuspecting people as possible. She also teaches at other schools up and down the east coast.

When you first put hammer to hot steel, you want Caitlin there to guide, mentor, and inspire you. She’s good at lighting fires.

LCMM Course & Workshop Refund and Cancellation Policy: Should you need to request a refund or switch to another date, please email and we will be happy to help. Refunds are permitted up to one week before the class. After one week before the class, refunds and date changes will not be permitted due to registration minimums. It’s not fair to the other participants for a refund to necessitate the cancellation of a class within one week of the course. If you have questions or special circumstances, please feel free to email or call and we will do our best to accommodate.
