Why this makes a great gift

In a world that is becoming increasing digital, we teach an ancient skill to create unique items out of fire and metal using not much more than a hammer. Connect with traditional methods and materials of hand crafting and learn the art of blacksmithing at our workshops. Beginning with one of the earliest tools, the axe. You will gift a guided experience with the assistance of our trained blacksmiths, to mold and forge a custom piece to take home. Axcadmy is inviting you to forge new memories!

Product Description

Location

388 Carlaw Ave, Toronto, ON, Canada, M4M 3P1

Duration

Approximately 5 hours. Workshops take place on Saturday & Sundays

Includes

During the 5 hours, you will forge your own handcrafted axe using not much more than a hammer. All materials needed will be provided on site and you get to take your custom axe home with you!

What You Will Do

Meet at a local coffee shop for a light snack and refreshments before the workshop begins. After an initial orientation, head to the forge and allow your creativity and appreciation for metal work to collide with an opportunity to forge your own handcrafted axe. Learn how to heat carbon steel in a forge and shape it into an axe with an anvil and various hammers. We will walk you through the heat-treating process, grinding, and sharpening. Solid wood handles will be fitted to your custom axe before you take it home!

Inspired by a love of the Canadian wilderness, the blacksmiths at Axcadmy lead you through an experience of building an axe with your hands, directly from the raw materials.

Who Will Guide You

The skillful blacksmiths at Axcadmy will guide you through the process and support your experience.

Axcadmy

Axcadmy is a workshop where you can let your creativity and appreciation for metal work collide to build beautiful, handcrafted axes made by you with the guidance of experienced blacksmiths.

Our love for the Canadian wilderness and camping sparked Axcadmy. One of our favourite things to do while camping is to hang out by the fire. We needed an axe to bring along on our adventures. Instead of buying one, we decided to make our own! It was a thrill to forge something out of misshapen raw material into a functional and well-formed axe.

We want to share this experience with you. Come out to our custom axe making workshop and learn.
