Blacksmithing Overview & Forging Handles
March 22, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm$75 - $90
This is a four hour forging session combining the Overview course with a handle 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. Through Forging Handles we will explore the processes of twisting, bending, punching and chiseling. The resulting handles will take on a variety of forms depending on the stock and sequences we use. 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.
