The Forgeworks Team

the other faces behind the magic


Logan has been apprenticing with Laidlaw Forgeworks since 2013. As our Jr. Instructor, he shows his extensive knowledge on all subjects surrounding blacksmithing and is extremely creative in finding a solution when the traditional methods fall short. Logan is usually the first instructor most students have when starting lessons at the shop.   


Kaden has been apprenticing with Laidlaw Forgeworks since 2014, and is a Red Seal welder. Although, not on the teaching team, Kaden is a great asset to the completion of many projects taken on in the shop and is consistently creating new projects to try out and find ways to complete.
