Description

During this weekend long Blacksmithing class (Friday night - Sunday afternoon) at Cleveland Blacksmithing located in Cleveland's historic neighborhood of Ohio City, you will forge a beautiful wall ornament building upon the skills that were developed in the Level 1 blacksmithing class.

Topics we will cover throughout the weekend include drawing and design, and prepping your materials. Then, at the anvil, you’ll learn to forge decorative elements such as botanical leaves and form spiraling tendrils. You’ll practice methods of traditional joinery by creating collars and riveting. You will also have the chance to learn how basic MIG welding and oxy-acetylene torches interact together to form and create an art piece of your own design. Lastly, you will complete your project by applying different finishing options and patinas intended to highlight and preserve your ironwork.

This fun and energetic intro to blacksmithing class guarantees good times and promises enthusiastic hands-on instruction that is simple and informative. By the end of the weekend, you’ll have gone from a keen interest in blacksmithing to producing forged ironwork.

>> This is a weekend long blacksmithing class meeting on Friday 6:30pm-9:30pm, Saturday, 11am-5pm w/lunch included, and Sunday, 11am-2pm. Participants must be able to attend all 3 consecutive weekly class sessions.
