La forge d'Ostiches School
The American Bladesmith Society is proud to announce the scheduling of ABS approved bladesmithing classes at The Forge at Ostiches, Belgium. The first class “Introduction to Bladesmithing" was offered in October 2013. ABS Master Smith Jean-Paul Thevenot of Dijon, France, is the primary instructor, assisted by Dirk Bourguignon and Frederic Taquet of Belgium.
The school site is located in a beautiful Belgian village just south of Brussels. Accommodations for students are within 2 to 3 miles from the school. Here is a chance to combine a wonderful vacation in Belgium and a class in the art of the forged blade at the same time.
