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 shown at right: a drive-hook, an S-hook, a wrist cuff (Viking armband, anyone?), or just keep hammering and see what amazing shape comes forth. Bring:  your creativity, safety glasses, and curiosity. We supply everything else.
Safety Equipment: safety glasses, hearing protection, clothing of natural fiber with no cuffs or fraying, cotton or leather gloves and leather boots or shoes.
Lunch Arrangements: Bring lunch, snacks, and water or your favorite beverage. There is no formal shut down to break for lunch. You can stop any time during the class for snacks, lunch, or to rest.
