This course is designed to introduce blacksmithing tools and techniques.
Instructors will cover shop safety, types of forges, tools, and types of metal. Each student will demonstrate pointing, drawing out, tapering, forging starts and stops, hot cutting, scrolling, twisting, punching, as well as hot chisel work.
Students will use their new skills to forge leaf keyrings and hooks.
Advanced classes in knife making, tool making, and the artist blacksmith will be offer later in the year. The Basics of Blacksmithing class is a prerequisite and must be completed prior to attending the advanced classes.
