The group of 10 are among the roughly 1,000 people who have taken part in the Saskatoon Western Development Museum's (WDM) blacksmith class. The program celebrated its 100th course over the weekend.

Blacksmithing still popular in Saskatoon at Western Development Museum - Metro News

February 10, 2016

An age-old tradition is attracting a sold-out crowd.

The Western Development Museum in Saskatoon offers a blacksmithing course four times a year and there is a wait list for every session.

Sean Garrett, a 28-year-old from Saskatoon, was in the class over the weekend and said it’s satisfying to fire up the forge and shape a piece of heavy metal.

“It’s part of our heritage and it’s just so cool,” said Garrett. “You make something out of nothing.”
