Event description

Description

What?! The zombie apocalypse is coming?! You bet it is, and if you’re lucky enough to survive the initial shock, you’ll need an array of items for protection at a moments notice. Stabbers, pokers, strikers, and jabbers are the best form of defense from flesh eating zombies, and during the month of October*, that’s exactly what we’re gonna help you make!

In this 3-hour class at Cleveland Blacksmithing, you’ll hand-forge all the creative zombie defense tools you can dream up. We’ll start by covering the basics of blacksmithing; including general safety practices and the tools used in this age old craft. Next, we'll cover the basics of forging iron such as heating, stance at the anvil, and hammer swing. Then, you'll take your first crack at hammering hot metal on an anvil and get started on building your zombie defense collection.

Each student will learn different processes based on the items they design, but typical topics covered will be drawing out and tapering, bending and twisting, cutting and drifting. We’ll also have the MIG welder available for assembly, as well as, scrap leather for dressing up handles.

Cost includes all steel and basic shop supplies involved in introductory instruction, but feel free to bring in your own found object for modification as well.

--

  • No previous metalworking experience is necessary.
  • Ability to work with your found object will be determined by the blacksmith. (Found object optional.)
  • 18 and under will require parental consent. 14 and under will require a participating parent.
  • Protection: You must be covered from the waist down and have on closed-toe shoes. We have safety glasses or byo.
