Absolutely NO open toed shoes are allowed in the shop (boots are best, but tennis shoes work).

Long pants and clothing that is of natural fiber (cotton) are strongly suggested. You WILL get dirty.

Safety glasses/gloves are provided, but it is strongly suggested you bring ones that fit your hands/face. Safety glasses must BE WORN AT ALL TIMES while in the shop.

Bringing water/tea/etc is a good idea, as are snacks. Blacksmithing is a physically intense medium, so be prepared.
