Blacksmithing Overview & Hooks
December 1 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm$100 - $120
This is a four hour forging session combining the Overview with a Forging Hooks. (*This Overview is required for anyone who is interested in taking further blacksmithing classes with Calypso.) 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.
