1 + 8 =

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.

This class focuses on hammer control and fire maintenance, as well as an overview of heat treatment. There is great precision involved in making a good knife, and you will do better in this class if you already have some hammer control, and a little practice under your belt. This said, being a complete newbie won’t stop you from understanding the class material, or creating a functional knife. But it’s harder for a beginner with no experience to forge a blade that is smooth enough not to require extensive grinding to finish. If you can routinely drive a nail without making hammer marks in the wood you drive the nail into, you should be fine in this class.
