Join me for a class in Blacksmithing fundamentals. In the basic 15 hour course, you'll learn the fundamentals of hand-forging. This course emphasizes the use of traditional smithing tools such as hammers, tongs, rasps, files, hot & cold chisels, stakes and anvils. Use of modern power tools is de-emphasized.
Some of the skills you will learn will be:
Pointing, widening, squaring, twisting and scrolling a bar
Forging matching pieces
Forging with tool steel
Forging sub-assemblies, composing and finally joining pieces into a plant-form.
Tool identification & use
Shop layout & design
Metallurgy for Blacksmiths
This course is meant to serve as a foundation for further blacksmithing study. Length: 15 Hours (three five-hour days or five three-hour days) Cost: $375.00
