Experience the ancient craft of blacksmithing in beautiful Whycocomagh, Cape Breton Island

Blacksmiths were once as important to a community as the doctor. They provided everything from the nails needed to build a house to the forks used to eat.

At FireHouse Ironworks you can work along side a local blacksmith and experience what it was like to work in a traditional blacksmith shop. After a safety demonstration and basic forge safety instruction, try your hand at the heritage craft of blacksmithing. You will leave with a small item that you have made.
