Greenman Forge

Calypso is proud to have an on-farm blacksmith shop, also known as the Smithy. Co-Direcor Tom Zimmer is our resident blacksmith and blacksmithing instructor.
Interested in learning a new trade or enhancing your forging skills? Greenman Forge offers blacksmithing workshops for both beginners and more experienced smiths. All students must take the Blacksmithing Overview & Forging Hooks workshop to start. After that, you are eligible to take any other workshop including forging chisels, tongs, viking-style hand knives, and more.
