Introduction to Blacksmithing: Fundamentals of Forging I & II
Forging steel is a physically and mentally rewarding experience! In this class, students will learn the basics of forging hot metal, while creating a functional item for use in the home, cabin, or camp. Students will learn shop and machine safety, basic tooling, and the fundamentals of tapers, scrolls, hooks, twisting, upsetting, and much more. Students will complete a cumulative project, if time allows, forge their own creations. All levels welcome!
Students will learn to forge various decorative and joinery elements at the anvil. At the completion of the class, the student will have an understanding of blacksmithing, a working knowledge of a safe hand forging technique and a ring with a collection of forged elements representing the skills.
