  4. Here's another one you can add, if you don't mind.

    Sarqit Outdoor Living School
    147 Livingston St
    Whitehall, Mi

    1. Do you have contact info for the MI location...

    2. Hi there-

      If you're looking for additional information on the Sarqit Outdoor Living School you can follow this link to contact them:

      Let me know if there's anything else I can help with.


    3. Is there a contact number for the Sarqit Michigan location? I tried the contact form on the website but have not heard anything back. I am looking for a teacher in West Michigan. Thanks.

    4. Hi Karyn-

      I'm sorry for the wait. As far as I can tell, the Contact Form is the best way to get a hold of them. If nothing else, you could make the drive and talk to them.



    5. I sent an email this afternoon to confirm, but I don't think they're in Michigan any more. It sounds like he moved to Denver.

  5. Millrace Village, a historic village of rescued building in Northville, Michigan has informal training in blacksmithing. It is open 1-4 every Sunday through the good weather (June-October). Private lessons can be arranged with the blacksmiths on other days.

    1. Thanks for the information. I've added it under the 'Detroit Area' heading.

  6. Hello Terran, thank you for the referrals. We are scheduling now for fall/winter classes, including knife making. You're always welcome at our shop or we'd love to meet you down at Quadstate. Best of luck & forge on!

    1. You're welcome! I'll get your information added back and updated. Thanks for the invitation to the shop. If you're ever down in southern Indiana, you're welcome to stop by Brown County Forge, too. I'm there most days.
