Blacksmith Workshops


Chuck McCulley and Ron Shannon combine their talents to demonstrate and teach the art of crafting metal using the forge, anvil and a wide variety of blacksmithing tools.  Items made during the workshops include steak turners (for right and left-handed people), three-tine forks and dinner bells.  Chuck even makes the most beautiful roses out of copper. 


Many of these items go into the Fort Crook Museum Gift Shop and are sold to support the museum.

Workshops are held on the 1st and 3rd Sunday from noon to 4 PM during the winter months, beginning with the first Sunday in November, in the Blacksmith Shop at the back of the Equipment Barn at the museum. 


Donations of flat iron for use in the workshops and cash to buy coal for the forges are gratefully accepted.


Attendees are asked for a $5 donation and may have any degree of expertise.  Beginners are most welcome.  For more information call:
