CLEVELAND - Cleveland boasts many hidden gems, but none shine quite as brightly as The Urban Forge. Owned by the talented Tim Cunningham, this blacksmithing business offers a unique and unforgettable experience that's sure to leave you speechless. Recently, Gremi, the host of CleveItToUs, had the pleasure of discovering The Urban Forge's inner workings and getting hands-on with metalworking.
Blacksmithing is a craft that's been around for centuries, and it's amazing to see that it still has a place in our modern world. The Urban Forge is a prime example of this, and Tim is doing his part to keep the art alive in Cleveland.
As one of the few blacksmiths in Cleveland, Tim's passion for the craft shines through in everything he does. The Urban Forge is located in the same building where the Ingenuity Festival takes place each year, and visitors can often hear the rhythmic hammering of metal echoing through the halls.
During Gremi's visit, he experienced the heat and excitement of metalworking firsthand. Tim walked him through the process of heating the metal, shaping it with a hammer, and finishing it to perfection. Gremi was able to create his own masterpiece and left with a newfound appreciation for the art of blacksmithing.
But Gremi's experience is just the beginning. The Urban Forge offers a diverse range of events and learning experiences for anyone interested in metalworking. From beginner classes to advanced workshops, there's something for everyone.
