Blacksmithing Overview and Forging Hooks

November 4, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

S and Jhooks 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)

Call 907-451-0691 to register for this session.  

(*This Overview is required for anyone who is interested in taking further black smithing classes with Calypso.)
