Blacksmith Shop

Heritage Museum blacksmith shopBlacksmith Shop

Our working blacksmith shop is home to the Orange County Blacksmith Guild. The Guild graciously allows us to use the shop in some of our tours to discuss and demonstrate the historical significance of blacksmithing. A Guild blacksmith is available for most such tours to provide a live demonstration of the blacksmithing art. Participants learn how blacksmiths crafted useful and decorative items from iron, how the apprenticeship system worked, and other interesting facts about this important trade.

Heritage Museum blacksmith classes

Beginning Blacksmithing Classes are taught by the Guild on Saturdays from 9:00 am to noon at the blacksmith shop. Come by for a free demonstration or become a Guild member and participate in classes and California Blacksmith Association certificate programs.
