Video Games. TV. Movies. Comic books.
Set them aside and let's make something real.
This is a chance for a teen with no experience to engage with an ancient and vital craft.
We'll cover the content of our 'A Taste of Blacksmithing' wherein we learn safety and basic hammer technique and make an 'S'-hook, and our 'Rudiments of Blacksmithing I' class where we make a barbeque fork and a pair of blacksmithing tongs, in the process learning how to run a variety of coal forges.
For adults we cover this content in 5 3-hour meetings, in this class we do it in 6 2.5-hour meetings, a pace we've found better suited to our younger students. dates×
Instructor: Carl West
Maximum 4 students, one per forge
