A number of people have e-mailed me lately asking about classes. It has been several years since I have taught classes, but there are two fellow "Forged in Fire" champions in the San Antonio area who are teaching classes in conjunction with the Southwest School of Art and independently. They are Tobin Nieto of Stonehaven Knifeworks and Alex Ruiz of Volundr Forge.
Sign up for classes via the Southwest School of Art website: https://www.swschool.org/
Or make inquiries at the STAB HQ website: http://www.stabhq.com/
Speaking of which, STAB HQ is the South Texas Association of Bladesmiths Headquarters, a pooling of resources among several San Antonio area knifemakers. More about that later.
