    Hello! I am very interested in your classes, I would like to know if you have classes all year round and all the costs and schedule information.
    I am a Venezuelan Architect and I will be living in USA for two years, and I would like to assist to your classes the whole year, I wonder if you have a workshop to fit my request for a year.
    Thanks for your time, and I am looking foward for your answer.

      Hello Wilma,

      It’s a pleasure meeting you. Yes I do offer classes all year round. The classes are also offered 7 days per week to accommodate different peoples schedules. I’m a little confused about your request though. Do you want to take one of my classes: The beginners or advanced Blacksmith Class? or do you want to lease my studio space for a year? Let me Know and then I can better accommodate you.

      Thanks for your Interest,
      Rob Buck

    I am looking for a wrought iron sword for decorating purposes. Can u help? Do u have such a thing?

    • Robert Buck

      Hello Ladell,

      I can make you a decorative Wrought Iron Sword and if you email me your design and specifications I will give you a quote. Better yet I can teach you to make your own decorative sword if you take both the beginners and the advanced blacksmith Classes at Wrought Iron Arts. For more information email Rob at wroughtironarts@aol.com

    Hey Rob, its been a long while since I contacted you. I had inquired into doing a intro classo for four students. (50’s+). And then I had family problems with the loss of my dad and just didn’t have the time for futher communication. My apology to you, I did not forget about you. I am now back “on tract” and my three friends are ready to learn! We would be coming from Gainesville, and are probably looking at doing the class on a Friday mid morning. Any availability? (mid January- mid February 2015) Please refresh me as to the cost for each of us and how much you want upfront and where to send the check to. I/we are interested in creating ‘yard art’ and not sure which class would be best to do this– the welding versus the blacksmith? And do we end up with something to take home from our class? Thank you! Jeff Dunn

  7. Hello,
    Are you also in Atlanta, GA?
    Your website comes up every time I search on Google for a metal school.

    • Robert Buck

      Hi Judith, I’m sorry I only offer the classes in the Tampa Bay area but you’re a lot closer than a large percentage of my students. I do provide local hotel recommendations within a 1/2 mile of our studio for all of my students who travel to take my classes from other US states and other countries and can provide them for you along with more class information and how to pay for your class of choice if you provide me with your email.

    Thank you, Heather

    • Robert Buck

      Hi Heather,

      It’s a pleasure to meet you and I would be happy to help you. You have the choice to use your gift card (gift certificate) on any of our classes (blacksmith, welding or Plasma) and all the classes are the same price with the same BOGO offer of $299+$99 for a total of just $398 for 2 students! You can also purchase your gift card/certificate right now by personal check or US postal money order. When I receive your full $398 payment I will contact you by this email address with a confirmation of payment email that will also contain an attachment document that you can print out and present to whom ever you wish to give your gift card/certificate to.

      The following is more information about our classes along with how to pay for your gift card certificate:

      The classes are personalized (1-2 student maximum) in size. The only other time there is another student other than you is if you bring a friend to take the class with you utilizing the monthly (2 student) special. So in other words you are never taking a class with people you don’t know competing for time with me during class.

      All materials and tools are provided. All you need are a sturdy pair of shoes or even sneakers, no open toe sandals or flip flops please. Classes start at 9:30 AM. You can bring a bag lunch as there will be a 30-60 min. break provided and there are several restaurants within walking distance. Classes are a full day of instruction and are generally about 6 hours long. We keep at it until you’ve mastered the material covered. Classes are available 7-days a week. When your ready to redeem your gift card/certificate call or email us and we’ll reserve a date for you.

      To pay for your gift card/certificate please make a $398 personal check or US postal money order payable to:

      Robert Buck
      and mailed to:
      707- First Ave. S.W.
      Largo, Fl. 33770
      *Personal checks or USPS money orders
      *When I receive your 50% deposit or full payment I will send you a confirmation email that will serve as your receipt of payment.

      If you have any more questions please don’t hesitate to email me back or call (727) 588-1315

      P.S. The studio where classes are taken is located at 707- First Ave. S.W. Largo, Fl. 33770. Just come in the main entrance through “The Sculpture Garden” at the corner of First Ave. and Ridge Rd. There is street parking on both sides of First Ave. and Ridge Rd. and the studio is directly behind the former restaurant with a sign that says “Iron Artist”

      P.P.S. We also encourage all students to bring a friend or family member to spend the day watching their loved ones and taking pictures or videos if they would like (for no extra charge). I also provide Comfortable chairs and bottled spring water for students and their guests.

    • Robert Buck

      Hi Nicole,

      We offer the beginners blacksmith classes 7 days a week. If you could give me 3-4 potential dates that work for you in order of preference I’ll get back with you and let you know which one or ones are still available. I will email more information about the beginners class to your email.
