Class Description: This is the day to try blacksmithing. All are welcome – we have designed 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.
