An Introduction to Blacksmithing
Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about this class:
One day beginner’s class for those who have never hit hot metal before. You’ll learn about shop safety, how to build and maintain a forge fire, basic metallurgy, and fundamental blacksmithing processes. You will learn to taper, scroll, and twist metal to make a basic set of tools to manage the fire in your own shop. If you come just to get a taste of blacksmithing, you’ll use the same skills to make decorative ‘S’ hooks or a simple bottle opener. Please pack a lunch, or plan to visit the Subway, which is a short drive from the shop.
Next Class: Saturday January 25 (full)
