*BLACKSMITHING IS CURRENTLY NOT RUNNING. WILL BE BACK SOMETIME IN 2024.
Learn the ancient technique of Blacksmithing in this 4-week Intro class. Participants will make a small knife by heating metal in a forge then shaping it on an anvil. Students will begin with a piece of metal, then through a series of forging and hammering on an anvil they will end up with a small knife. Then grinding and filing to refine the shape and edge. Knives will be finished off with a wrapped cord handle.
This 3-hour Intro Bladesmithing class is offered twice a week, on Mondays and Tuesdays from 5:45 - 8:45 pm. Pick a day that works best for you. This class will take only a maximum of 4 students, so register early! All supplies and use of equipment are included in this unique and authentic class.
