Participants will gain an appreciation for the skills, physical demands and challenges blacksmiths and metal workers face in the shop.
Each class will involve heating steel pieces to workable temperatures, then using anvils, hammers and smaller tools to bend, forge, punch and draw these pieces into art and tools. Participants will walk away with finished products like bottle openers, marshmallow skewers. Return smiths will create more elaborate metal works.
