EAGLE — Anyone who ever wanted to dabble in blacksmithing will get a chance at Old World Wisconsin next month.
The historical site just outside Eagle will offer blacksmithing classes from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct. 13, Oct. 20 and Oct. 27. Participants will use 19th-century tools and a coal-fired forge and receive a training manual. They'll also become eligible for a more advanced blacksmithing class at the site in November.
The October classes are open to anyone over age 16. The classes cost $150.
