One of the joys of being a blacksmith is being able to make your own tools—tools that fit, tools that are the right size, tools that have whatever special features you feel they need.
Learn to make your own jeweler's hammers.
The sizes you want, the shapes you want, when you want.
The focus will be on learning the skills necessary to make small (less than three ounce) hammers for riveting, raising (anti- and syn- clastic), shaping, texturing... whatever.
Students should bring if possible:
- A handle (or handles) suited to the hammer(s) they plan to make
Gift Certificates for Small (Jeweler's) Hammers are available.
