Blacksmithing Overview & Hooks

March 21, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$100 - $120

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.

*This Overview is required for anyone who is interested in taking further blacksmithing classes with Calypso.

WHEN: Wednesday, February 1st from 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm.
WHERE: Calypso Farm and Ecology Center
