Wrought Iron Arts Blacksmith, Welding, & Plasma Art Classes

To enroll in classes e-mail: Rob at
[email protected]. Our Blacksmith classes are not your typical "cookie cutter" forging classes that are common elsewhere.

You will not have to make the “project of the day” simply because your blacksmith instructor is not creative enough to give you options. I cater the classes towards what the student wants to make. If for example you're a fan of “Forged in Fire” and interested in Bladesmithing then I gear the instruction toward making a knife or dagger, Your knife, dagger, sword, battle axe, or whatever you choose

From time to time we as Americans have put the country's needs above politics and also above business interests.

This is one of those times.

The recent events surrounding the radial right wing commandeering of the Republican party these past several years has taken our country to new lows and as a result our Republic is arguably at it's most fragile state. Ben Franklin once said upon leaving the Pennsylvania State House at the conclusion of the Constitutional Convention in 1787 “A Republic if we can keep it” when asked by Elizabeth Powell “Well, Doctor what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy”

The same can be asked of all Americans today.

The continued aiding, abetting, and providing of comfort to a known terrorist and traitor to our country must stop. Simply by remaining quite or continuing to vote for Trump's endorsed candidates only exacerbates the problem and teeters our democracy closer towards collapse. How many times must the goal posts be moved back every time Trump's actions prove to be more sinister and criminal. It is time for Trump and his enablers to face justice or we will send the wrong message to future Americans, the rest of the world and our Republic simply cannot survive it.

For those of you who spout rhetoric like “there's going to be a civil war” and other ridiculous statements take heed.

There simply will be no civil war in our country. At least now now and hopefully never again in the future. For a civil war to happen there has to be reasonably equal size and scope of Americans with philosophical differences. On the one hand we have a vast majority of Americans who understand the peril we face and on the other we have a minority who enable the wanna be monarch. Albeit a loud minority enabled by their local Republican leadership that only prolongs the slow but sure death of this cult like worship. I cannot stress the “local leadership” enough. Sure there will be victories at the local level to prolong the inevitable collapse of Trumpism but collapse it will, hopefully not at the cost of our democracy. Elections at the national level have and will continue to take down Trumpism. Like all totalitarian movements, they all eventually collapse from the sheer weight of the fervor for their illustrious leader.

Please join all of us here at Wrought Iron Arts (and the 81 million strong who saved America in 2020) in condemning the continued enabling of Trump and his enablers themselves. Be vocal & vote this November.

Wrought Iron Arts will always be a safe haven for truth and (justice) and eventually all of America be will again. Have faith because we have always risen to the challenge. We rose together to beat imperialism during the Revolutionary War, we rose together once again to beat fascism during WWII, and we will rise together again to beat Trumpism!

Sincerely,

Robert Buck

Last Minute Knife Making Class Gift Certificates!

It's not too late to purchase that last minute killer Christmas gift that will "KEAL!"

You can call or email Rob at (727) 588-1315 or [email protected] to give the gift of knife making for Christmas, belated Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Festivus, or even New Years gift!

You can pay for your "Forged in Fire" style blacksmith & knife making class gift certificate using Zelle and get your loved one's gift certificate emailed to you the same day!

If this is a Christmas gift we accept Zelle right on up through Christmas Eve until about 11PM when I usually peter out, but I am back at it around 6-7AM with visions of sugar plums (and desperate husbands and wives) in my head ready to email out those very last minute Christmas gift certificates! I monitor email, and Zelle (albeit while drinking eggnog and making rather merry) right up until about 9:oo AM or when my wife yells at me to stop working and celebrate whole heartedly by turning off my lap top & cell phone!

Thank you for another great year and from all of us (okay it's just me and my wife!) here at Wrought Iron Arts, here's wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Hi Everyone!,

Our last Covid-19 Update! March 30, 2021

As most of you already know my wife has already had her 1st Pfizer shot with her 2nd shot on April 8th and 2 weeks after that on April 22nd she's good to go. I have received my 1st (also Pfizer) shot yesterday March 29th with my 2nd shot coming on April 19th and then 2 weeks after that on May 3rd I'm good to go, leaving me a couple of days to stock up on propane and materials to be ready for classes.

So we finally made it! Wrought Iron Arts is reopening for classes starting on May 6th, 2021! For those of you who've supported us this past year and purchased your gift certificates and those of you who patiently waited for us to reopen, I want to personally thank you for your patronage and your patience!!

Please email me at [email protected] to reserve your class date at your convenience.

I want to ask all of you to be patient with us as there are (a lot) of you who have gift certificates to redeem and (a lot) of you who have been patiently waiting for us to reopen to purchase your class. Some students will get in early in the first few months while others will be later this year. Please be rest assured that all of you will have your day of fun here at Wrought Iron Arts because all class payments do not expire!

When your day of fun arrives!

Classes start at 9:30 AM. All materials and tools are provided. All you need are a sturdy pair of shoes or even sneakers, no open toe sandals or flip flops please.

You can bring a bag lunch or call for food delivery, Uber Eats etc... as there will be about a 20-30 min. lunch break provided and if the weather's nice you can eat out in the sculpture garden too. Classes are a full day of instruction and are generally about 6-7 hours long. We keep at it until you've mastered the material covered and your project is completed!

Covid-19 Class Protocols:

Our safety protocols for the Covid-19 era we are currently living in are as follows. Your instructor (me) will be fully vaccinated by the time of our reopening and we strongly suggest all students to be as well. Students who have been fully vaccinated (will be free to not wear a mask) but will be (required to bring their proof of vaccination card) because yes I will check! and for your piece of mind I will show you my proof of vaccination card because I will not be wearing a mask. If you haven't yet received your final vaccine shot or have chosen not to be vaccinated upon arrival for your class, you will be (required to wear a mask) when you arrive and throughout the class day. This is out of respect to all of our students from all different parts of the county and beyond because even though we are now protected by our vaccines, it still may be possible to spread the virus to others. The classes are held in a 20' by 20' building open on 2 sides to allow for cross ventilation and there are several high speed and air moving fans throughout the work area to not only keep us cool but to make for a safer work place.

The studio where classes are taken is located at 707- First Ave. S.W. Largo, Fl. 33770. Just come in the main entrance through “The Sculpture Garden” at the corner of First Ave. and Ridge Rd. There is street parking on both sides of First Ave. and there is also a parking lot next door on the west side of the property. The studio is directly behind the smaller cottage building with a sign that says “Iron Artist”

Thank you for understanding and before you know it we'll all be back forging knives, daggers, swords or any other "weapon of minor destruction" you desire!

Best regards and I look forward to teaching all of you!

03/20/2021

Nearly 5 years ago on the morning of June 12th 2016 it was a day like most any other day here at Wrought Iron Arts. We were setting up the studio for another blacksmith & knife making class with students arriving shortly when news broke of the Pulse nightclub shooting. With only moments to spare before our students for the day arrived I hastily wrote a hand written sign and spray painted colorful stripes on it to show our solidarity with the gay community and placed it quite prominently in the studio where it remains to this day. Since then atrocity after atrocity has been beset upon our fellow human beings who deserve respect and inclusion in our society.

As you can see the sign has grown quite a bit these last 4 years and 9 months. All the cities on that sign with the exception of Boston have been attacks on “our fellow human beings” since that fateful June day.

It is a trend we must end!

The recent Atlanta shooting has shown us that it's not just hatred and ignorance that we have to eradicate. That it is also the apathy and empathy some in our community have shown towards the murderer as someone who was “just having a bad day.” The time for empathy toward this young man will only come after justice has been served and he has paid his debt to society.

Hatred and ignorance toward people of Asian, African, North American, South American, Australian, Pacific Islands, European descent, or heck any descent that I might have failed to mention even if you're ancestors are from Mars will not be tolerated here at Wrought Iron Arts!

Wrought Iron Arts will always be a safe haven for all people regardless of race, s*x, s*xuality, ethnicity, ideology, religion, or a lack thereof.

Sincerely,

Robert Buck

Latest Covid-19 Update: March 10th, 2021

Good news! Just last night (3/9) we finally got an appointment for my wife to be vaccinated!! Unfortunately it's the 2 shot variety but hey beggars can't be choosy. Her first shot is March 18th and her second is April 8th and then 2 weeks after that on April 22nd she's good to go! Then hopefully they'll let us under 65'ers like me get vaccinated. Nothing is written in stone yet but if sometime later this month or in April I can get vaccinated it looks like we'll have a Wrought Iron Arts reopening sometime in May!!

Once we've both been vaccinated I'll be able to give students a firm reopening date and you'll have the option to pick specific a class date. After that students on our (email reminder list) will get reminder emails that we have reopened for classes so if you're not already on our reminder list please email me at [email protected] and I'll put you on the list!

We will also be posting when classes are starting again here on our Covid-19 Update page on our web site:

https://wroughtironarts.wordpress.com/corona-19-update/

Either way about 2 weeks after I've been vaccinated or you can hug your neighbor again, kiss that guy or girl you've been waiting to do so with etc... get back in touch with me and we'll set you up for a class!

Until then stay safe and before you know it we'll all be back forging knives, daggers, swords, or any other weapon of minor destruction your heart desires!

Wrought Iron Arts Code of Ethics

Wrought Iron Arts is proud to announce that this blacksmith arts school is a hate and ignorance free zone. We will not tolerate bigotry and small mindedness toward any human being who deserves respect and dignity.

For those who are naïve enough to believe the 2020 presidential election was stolen, it's time to come to terms with the lies you've been told. The man you put your faith in is a seditious, treasonous, draft dodging, coward who lost the election by a very substantial margin and not worthy of your servitude nor your valuable time believing such unsubstantiated conspiracies.

The January 6th 2021 attack on the United States Capitol was an act of treason and an attempted overthrow of the duly elected government of the United States and the will of the American people. The failed coup d'état is condemned by all of us here at Wrought Iron Arts and any talk of aiding or abetting this authoritarian takeover of “our government” will not be tolerated.

Wrought Iron Arts will always be a safe haven for all people regardless of race, s*x, s*xuality, ethnicity, ideology, gullibility, religion, or a lack thereof.

Sincerely,
Robert Buck

The December Holidays BOGO promotion is good until the end of the month and payments only need to be received by the end of the month (year!) and classes can be scheduled later on this spring or summer because our gift certificates never expire! If this is a Christmas gift we accept PayPal and Zelle for our holiday gift certificates good for all of our classes including our blacksmith & knife making class right on up through Christmas Eve until about 11PM when I usually peter out, but I am back at it around 6-7AM with visions of sugar plums (and desperate husbands and wives) in my head ready to email out those very last minute Christmas gift certificates! I monitor email, PayPal and Zelle (albeit while drinking eggnog and making rather merry) right up until about 9:oo AM or when my wife yells at me to stop working and celebrate whole heartedly by turning off my lap top & cell phone!

Thank you for another great year (even under the circumstances) and from all of us (okay it's just me and my wife!) here at Wrought Iron Arts, here's wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Bill and I decided to see if we could do it on our own. We managed something that looks like a knife. Thanks Rob!
Sparks are flying at Rob's forge!
I was going to ask about commissioning a piece, but I noticed your “Authoritarian Warnings” where you mention us being a democracy. I abhor the idea.

We are not now, nor have we ever been, a democracy. In a democracy, the majority can and eventually does vote away the rights of minorities. We are a consitutional republic and our fore fathers warned us of the dangers of democracy.

As such, I'll vote with my wallet and I suggest you educate yourself on the subject. Failing that, you'll look foolish at best and help unwittingly doom us to repeating past mistakes at worst. I'd like to think this rant will have a positive effect, but I sincerely doubt that it will.
We had the most wonderful day learning to blacksmith with Robert. He was so generous with his knowledge and made my 12 year old son and I feel comfortable and confident. We are thrilled with our knives and excited to learn more. This was a fantastic experience for both of us.
Today I returned to Wrought Iron Arts (Rob Buck), this time with my youngest son to have him experience blacksmithing 1st hand. Rob's knowledge, workshop and patience is second to none; his class allows each participant to create a personal keepsake from start to finish (really...from a raw piece of steel into something amazing). Additionally, you can learn as much about the art as you desire; today we were educated in metal content, heating / temperature ranges, anvils, and in the proper techniques to move metal. I HIGHLY recommend his class to anyone interested in blacksmithing. It's a must do...
Purchased class as birthday gift for my son (and me). Amazing experience !! Robert is a wonderful teacher, extremely patient, allowed us to MAKE our own creation !
If you ever curious about the art of black smithing or forging, GREAT place to start !!!
Great place and a great primer if you want to get into smithing. Took his class about 2.5 years ago and here is my latest knife.
I am looking for somewhere near St. Pete I can learn to forge my own knives. Is this you?
Very Excited to be attended your class on Fathers Day. 😁
