(Update as of 9/22/20) We are closed for retail/walk-in traffic on Wednesday (9/23), Thursday (9/24), and Friday (9/25) for maintenance!

Arc + Flame is still not cleared to run any classes for the general public, including open torch flameworking. As a result, we have postponed all classes through Sept. 30th, 2020. 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 Fall 2020 Welding & Fabrication Industry Certificate Program through Monroe Community College is currently able to run because of direct partnership with higher education. 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. Please read our re-open plan for more details. We appreciate your understanding.

 Project Descriptions:

  • Introduction to Blacksmithing: In this 6-night workshop, students will learn and practice gas fire management, tapering, tool making, scrolling, punching and riveting.
         Candace started blacksmithing in 2006 and has explored many aspects of working metal. Through her explorations she has developed a strong belief that regardless of what you smith a strong foundation in the basic techniques is critical to success.
         This course will cover the fundamentals. Topics will include learning about different hammer blows and how to use them efficiently; tapering and material isolation; scrolling and bending; and many other topics. This class is not a project based class, so while you may leave with your samples you may not end up with a completed project. The focus of this class is on building forging skills. (Open to all levels)

(NOTE: Above are examples of various topics offered, however each class focuses on only one. The topic of each class is listed with the corresponding date.) 

Arc + Flame Blacksmithing Night Classes are an excellent way to learn and explore the various aspects of metal working. Our experienced instructors will use a combination of lecture, demonstration and hands-on instruction to enhance your learning experience.
