We will be teaching a blacksmithing class on Sunday, 30 June from 10-2.
Here is a link to the class.
Projects for the class are three different types of wall-mounted hooks:
- a double hook
- a coat and hat hook
- an over-the-door hook for wreaths, robes, etc. (also works for work cubicles).
Techniques taught include, but are not limited to:
- forge safety
- tools of the trade, including tong and hammer selection
- heat management
- hammering technique
- drawing a taper
- fullering to width
- using jigs for efficiency
Class size is limited to 10 students. Class fee is $10 to offset the cost of materials and fuel.
Wear a hat. Bring lots of water. It’s likely to be a warm one…
If you can, show up early (9:15) and help set up.
Have questions? Ask here or send me a PM.
