What to Expect

Through instruction and hands-on practice you will be learning the basics tenants of blacksmithing including how to properly control a hammer, a set of tongs and heat. While learning how to forge a hook you will learn how to employ the 4 pillars of smithing; twists, scrolls/counterscrolls, tapers, and drawing. You will leave equipped with an incredibly satisfying and rare skill, a useful metal object to display in your home, and the knowledge that you can reshape metal as our ancestors did.

Duration: 3 hour class
