Event description

Description

Welcome to the first steps of blacksmithing. This class is designed to get the student in front of the forge and swinging the hammer to learn the basic techniques involved in blacksmithing. The student will make and walk away with a simple hook by the end of this three-hour course. Exercises include drawing the stock out to a taper, flattening over the edge of the anvil to form a shoulder, and bending. Basic tools, safety, and starting the forge will also be covered.

Other skills and training will be provided as needed during the class to help students achieve a basic competency and functional knowledge of blacksmithing skills. These fundamental skills and concepts will be critical to moving forward into more advanced projects.

NOTE: While we will eventually offer more complex classes (I.E. Knives) we expect our students to demonstrate a basic level of competency in later stages. This class will help you get there.

This introductory level class will be offered on an ongoing basis most Wednesday and Thursday through mid October and is only available by registering here through Eventbrite. We have space for ONE PERSON each evening so sign up early, spots will go fast!

Tools and stock metal will be provided.

Students must sign a release of liability waiver upon arrival.
