Rudiments of Blacksmithing V

Rudiments V can be seen as the second four weeks of four weeks of our Basics II Series.
In Basics II (Rudiments 4,5,6) each meeting starts with lighting the fire and adding another link to the chain. Then we get on about the rest of the class.

We will cover:
- Lap-welding and Cleft-welding and the heat control that goes with
- Scrolling-in-air, making a juggling ball
Working to a drawing
- Working as Master and Striker, with and without set tools

and whatever might fit in or answer a question as time permits.
