Reenergize your team and build cohesion in the most exciting way possible: visit Lawless Forge and be blacksmiths for a day, where you and your team will create unforgettable memories together by forging your very own bottle openers out of metal. And yes, whatever you make you take home! In this 2.5 hour class, each person will use traditional blacksmithing tools and their own two hands to turn hot steel into bottle openers to take home.
The curriculum is designed to keep you engaged, excited, and active with virtually no waiting around: You will begin the class by putting on safety gear (glasses, gloves, and an apron) and reviewing safety procedures. Next is a brief, five minute discussion about the history of blacksmithing. Then it's time for the fun! Each person will use traditional blacksmithing equipment (forges, hammers, and anvils) to turn hot steel into a bottle opener. Each step will be demonstrated and guidance will be provided throughout the class. When visiting Lawless Forge, you'll be transported to an old-world blacksmith shop yet remain in the heartland of Seattle's industrial district known as SoDo. You'll be detached from the outside world but connected to your colleagues like never before. No prior experience required. Children as young as six may attend and everyone will do great without exception—we promise. Lawless forge instructors have over 40 years of combined experience and will keep you safe throughout.
