Full Description

A Taste of Blacksmithing

The discovery of iron and how to work it changed human history. Tools, weapons, and daily life haven't been the same since. Here's your chance to learn to control one of the basic elements of modern human life. In this three hour class you will be introduced to the basic smithing techniques of hammering, drawing-out, cutting, bending, and twisting. Using these techniques and a coal-fired forge you will heat a piece of iron to brilliant incandescence and with anvil, hammer, and tongs create a decorative and useful 'S'-hook.

If you find you really enjoyed ""A Taste..."", there is more you can do afterward.
