History: After years of people inquiring about their welding and ornamental metalwork instruction, the decision was made to start building New England School of Metalwork. Now state of the art and fully equipped as a welding school, the concept was originally created by Maine Oxy, a local welding distributor, and Dereck Glaser, local artisan metalsmith. In February of 2000, the newly constructed facility opened its doors for class. The New England School of Metalwork pursued the idea of building a Bladesmithing program in 2005 and now has courses year-round with instruction by ABS master bladesmiths from all over the country. Third in the United States for schools endorsed by the American Bladesmith’s Society.
