About this Event

In this semi-private workshop (max of 4 people) you will be introduced to classic blacksmithing techniques. Work side by side with our expert instructor as you're introduced to blacksmithing best practices.

This introductory blacksmithing course is focused on hand forging techniques. Students will explore some of the basic forging processes such as drawing, twisting, scrolling, upsetting, punching, and drifting.

During the class students will forge a variety of basic hooks and, time permitting, other simple projects of their choice.
