During the winter months, Ken teaches weekend blacksmithing classes in which students can learn about the craft. The class topics range from beginning and intermediate level blacksmithing skills, forging animal heads, tool making (punches, chisels, tongs), flower and leaf making, scroll making, and many others.
In September, Ken and MaryLou, with the help of others, open the doors on the blacksmith shop at the Albany Pioneer Club in Albany, Minnesota for the annual Threshing Show. The old fashioned blacksmith shop allows people to step into the past and see what blacksmithing was all about years ago.
