Lunenburg Knifemaking Stay

Lunenburg Knifemaking Stay

Want to dive into the art of knifemaking? Maybe you’re new to the craft or would like to expand your skills? On this 2-day experience, get insight into the methods and art of a modern bladesmith, before swinging the hammer and crafting your very own knife! You can participate as much or as little as you want in the forging experience. Dive deep in the craft or choose to sit back and watch Rick create the knife in front of you.

Located within walking distance to the historic town of Lunenburg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this unique getaway includes an overnight stay at The Edge of Lunenburg, a newly built loft apartment above the forge, overlooking Lunenburg Back Harbour.
