Event description

Description

Blacksmithing 101 is for anyone who already has some experience or just really wants to pursue blacksmithing. This two-day course is structured to give students exposure to the fundamentals of forging steel with class time and plenty of hands-on forging time in the shop. Students will make simple tools and then use those tools to make more complex projects. The focus is on understanding the principles of the various techniques used in blacksmithing and using them to create tools and projects. There will be an introduction to basic metallurgy and heat treating tool steels. In this class the student will learn to draw a taper, upset, twist, punch, slit, rivet, and several different aspects of forging. Projects to take home include a punch, chisel, tongs and several decorative elements.

The class is limited to 4 students ensuring plenty of one-on-one instruction time. We start at 8am, break for lunch (provided by Benson Designs) from 12-1pm, then work until 5pm. Each participant receives a study guide that includes descriptions and illustrations of things covered in the class, as well as a resource list.

I PROVIDE: forges, anvils, hand tools, materials (tool steel, mild steel, shop supplies), forge fuel, instruction, guidance, lunch and snacks

YOU PROVIDE: sturdy footwear, cotton clothing, gloves, safety glasses, water bottle, enthusiasm

Participants must be 15 years of age or older. Registration can be transferred to another person. No refunds after one week before start date of class.
