This is a four hour forging session combining the Overview course with a Hook forging session. In this session you will be introduced to the blacksmith shop and the basics of blacksmithing with a gas forge, as well as shop safety, hammering skills and the varied properties of steel. After creating S-hooks (drawing out, twisting and bending) we will learn other blacksmithing fundamental (squaring, drawing out a taper, rounding, basic scrolling and punching) as we create a variety of J hooks. This will be a good introduction to blacksmithing and it will get you on your way to exploring more project based classes.
COST: members $100, non- members $120, (includes all material fees)
