Viking-Era Blacksmithing Demonstration
Swing by the North House Folk School Blacksmith Shop to see instructor, Doug Swenson forge small knives.
Doug began experimenting with a coal forge as a young fellow growing up on a farm in northwestern Minnesota. This early exposure to blacksmithing lead to a life long passion for the craft that he continues to cultivate. Doug’s primary work has been done out of a shop that recreates the time period of 1885 to 1900 but most recently has been focusing on the tools and techniques of Viking age Sweden.
