Rudiments of Blacksmithing VI

Rudiments VI can be seen as the third 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:
- Making a small hammer head and how to put a handle on it
- Threading the needle
- Collar welding and if there's time threading a bolt on the hardy
- Working with Wrought Iron, the joys and the pitfalls

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