Introduction to Blacksmithing Classes
Designed for those with an interest in learning the fundamentals of blacksmithing, and/or continuing their education. Students will learn to light and work with a coal forge to heat metal to more than red hot and then to use hammers and other tools to forge, bend and twist the hot metal to desired shapes. Students will work hands-on with a coal burning forge and learn to forge iron into useful and decorative items.
The classes are intended for adults. However, responsible and well-behaved youth are invited to participate with accompanied, paid adult supervision, after confirming possible registration with staff.
2022 class schedule will be announced in the summer.
Classes to be held August-October.
