Blacksmithing - An Introduction
Lifelong Learning

Blacksmithing in the modern world is rooted in creating art and tools with fire and force. This is a beginner class designed to give you a taste of what being a blacksmith is all about, as you use contemporary and antique equipment to learn the ancient skill of forging steel with hammer and anvil. You will learn hammer control, the different parts of the anvil, the different strikes on the anvil and how to use them to maximize your effort. All class projects are designed to use the skills you develop to enhance your capabilities. Wear closed toe shoes and natural fiber clothing. Students must bring their own above-the-wrist leather work gloves and safety glasses (both can be found at home stores). Please bring a large container of water or sports drink - this is hot and thirsty work!
