Book your slot at my blacksmith course in Ljubljana!
I’m self-learned blacksmith, it wasn’t in our family before. Someone needs to be the first, isn’t it so (: And approx. 15 years ago, when I’ve decided I actually want to become a blacksmith, I was searching for knowledge all over – through learning by doing, finding and reading books, internet videos and reaching out to other blacksmiths, willing to pay for any kind of knowledge. In my experience I realised there is too many secrets in our profession in our country, nobody wants to share their knowledge, fearing you will soon be better, that you will steal their ideas. This was especially common with the older blacksmiths (don’t be mistaken, I’ve made really good relationships with some of the younger ones, to whom I owe a lot of my knowledge). But in my opinion, not sharing knowledge is a big waste, since there is no blacksmithing school and all precious knowledge and vast experience of blacksmithing goes to waste. It’s hard to maintain a tradition if we won’t share it. That’s why I’ve decided to pass on my knowledge to anyone who willing to learn or try something new.
At the moment I can offer you four different blacksmithing courses (on mobile phones scroll left or right for options):
