Zero to BlacksmithingIII
Working with pipe to make candlesticks, learning collaring, and making matching scrolls.

Video Games. TV. Movies. Comic books.
Set them aside and let's make something real. Part III!

Zero to Blacksmithing is a chance for a teen with no prior smithing experience to engage with an ancient and vital craft. This is the third segment of the class, covering material equivalent to that covered in our adult class Rudiments of Blacksmithing III, including collaring, working with pipe, making matching parts, scrollwork, and tapping and threading.

Gift Certificates for Zero to BlacksmithingIII are available.

For adults we cover this content in 4 3-hour meetings, in this class we do it in 5 2.5-hour meetings, a pace we've found better suited to our younger students.    dates&times
