(Update as of 10/17/20) Greats news! We received notification from New York State that indoor arts and education categorized businesses are FINALLY able to re-open to the general public! Arc + Flame is evaluating the fine details and will act accordingly. Stay tuned for more announcements during the week! Earlier this month, Arc + Flame postponed all classes through 2020. We will evaluate the new mandates and provide details on re-opening soon. Our center is open for retail and walk-in customers on Monday 9am-5pm, Wednesday 10AM-6PM, and Friday 9am-5pm.

We are actively interviewing candidates interested in our Welding & Fabrication Program set to begin February 2021. This program is directly partnered through Monroe Community College. Contact us today for details on the admissions process!

Our Fall 2020 Welding & Fabrication Industry Certificate Program through Monroe Community College is currently able to run because of direct partnership with higher education [based on NYS Phase 4 COVID guidelines]. The same goes for our collegiate welding classes for engineering students through Rochester Institute of Technology and machining and HVAC students through Monroe Community College.

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.
