Classes?? Help in your shop

I am looking for a blade/knife making class in the deep south. The 2 weeks one at ABS is too far away and too long (two weeks).One week is all I can
get away. That leaves weekends for travel time. If there just is not any near by, are there any Smiths who let me work in their shop for some hands on teaching?Since I have no experience it would limit me to "scut work", but am willing. I could reimburse you for material I would need or I screw up.
Thanks
Tom

Hi Tom,

If it is basic knifemaking or bladesmithing you can check out the link below:

North Carolina Custom Knifemakers' Guild

This is the website of our sister guild and at this link you will find a list of classes that she, along with the Montgomery Community College, sponsor. Check this out and see if this could be of help to you.

Of course if you want some free hands on, keep your eye here on this forum. The Georgia Custom Knifemakers' Guild hold classes all over the state once every 3 months. Carl Rechsteiner, our VP, puts time and effort in trying to lay out a slate of demos that are interesting and helpful to hone the skills of those present. Carl also sets up a hammer-in in the north Georgia mountains at the Trackrock Campgrounds two times a year.

If you are interested in joining us just e-mail my husband, John, and we will be glad to make sure you get info on the meetings.

Hope this information is helpful.
