(Update as of 8/5/20) Arc + Flame is still not cleared to run any recreational classes for the general public, including open torch flameworking. This is based entirely on New York State’s mandates pertaining to COVID. Our center is open for retail and walk-in customers from 9am-5pm, Monday through Friday. Our MCC Welding & Fabrication Industry Certificate Program is cleared to run, both for the current semester and the upcoming semester starting in September. Please read our re-open plan for more details!

SMITHING: A metalsmith is a craftsperson that creates useful items out of various metals. Smithing is one of the oldest metalworking occupations. Shaping metal with a hammer and anvil is the most prominent component of smithing. Often the hammering is done while the metal is hot, having been heated in a forge.

  • Blacksmithing: Create objects from steel by heating and forging the metal, and using tools to hammer, bend, and shape. Arc + Flame uses both gas and coal forges for blacksmithing classes. Keep in mind, most smithing classes are physically demanding and also hot in temperature! Blacksmithing classes at Arc + Flame are available as 3-Hour Sampler, Workshops, Night Courses and  Date Nights.

    NOTE: Students under the age of 16 MUST contact Arc + Flame Blacksmithing Director (Candace Martens) for an evaluation prior to enrolling in a smithing class. Candace can be reached at blacksmithing@rocafc.com or 585-617-9644.  Interested Students MUST COMPLETE this underage student APPLICATION prior to meeting with Blacksmithing Director.

    If you have a question about the facility or registering for a class, please call Arc + Flame directly at 585-349-7110.
