No Experience necessary. Just the desire to learn.
The Beginning Blacksmithing
class will teach the basics of blacksmithing. Including...
drawing out, upsetting, twisting, bending, fullering,
punching, and cutting. It will also cover forging dynamics,
safety and three H's.
At the end of this class you
will have an understanding and ability to use these
basics. And will have accomplished this by completing
three projects. You will make a key fob with leaf, a
letter opener and a J hook.
Completing these three projects
are the goal.... it's possible to complete more
projects depending on the individual.
Intermediate Blacksmithing class requires knowledge of the basics, and some forging experience.
This class takes the basic knowledge and experience
to the next level. The goal is to make either a fireplace
set, a candelabra or a similar project. Using all the
basic forging techniques in the beginning class.
Blacksmithing class requires the completion of an intermediate class and
at least a year forging experience. And an approved
design for the class project that can be completed in
a week. This class is structured towards the individuals
needs and goals.
