Taste of Blacksmithing 2019
March 9, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm$50
This is the day to try blacksmithing! We’re designing this for the complete novice. Hammer in hand, iron heated in the coal forge, anvil at the ready, you’ll be making one or more of these take-home projects: a drive-hook, an S-hook, a wrist cuff (Viking arm band, anyone?), or just keep hammering and see what amazing shape comes forth! Bring your creativity, safety glasses, and curiosity – we supply everything else.
Instructors: Education Committee
Price: $50 (Guild members $40)
Tools and Equipment or other items participants are to bring to the class:
You’ll be working with red-hot iron and burning coal. Bring safety glasses. Wear non-melty clothing (no synthetics)– no cuffs or frayed edges. Same goes for footwear (leather boots are best). If you have ear protection, bring it. If not, we’ll have foam earplugs for you.
Lunch Arrangements: Bring a lunch or eat at a local establishment. We’ll have an hour for lunch.
