Rudiments of Blacksmithing III

This class continues where Rudiments of Blacksmithing II left off. You'll finally have some idea of how to manage a forge-fire, and get to practice doing so.  While doing so, you'll produce matching scrolls and generally work on having more control over your work, and learn still more basic techniques, including:
scrollwork
collaring
forging pipe
threading (taps and dies)
sheet metal work
bending matching curves

Typical projects in Rudiments III include candlesticks and ornamental scrollwork.Taking the classes Rudiments I, Rudiments II, and Rudiments III is the equivalent of taking The Basics of Blacksmithing class.

12 hours total in either 4 3-hour sessions or 6 2-hour sessions.    dates&times
