What you'll do

Students will learn the history of metallurgy and blacksmithing. Once the tools of the craft are identified and described they will learn coal selection and how to fire up their forge. Safety is key and an appropriate portion of time is used to develop proper techniques and procedures. Students will learn to work metal through bending, spreading, upsetting, drawing out, cutting, twisting, annealing, hardening, and tempering. The fire will warm you and help the iron to bend to your will- your skills will grow quickly.

Wayne

As a retired science teacher, I am happy to share my knowledge of blacksmithing with all ages. I have been blacksmithing for over 20 years teaching the basics to students, adults, couples, and all ages and abilities. My class offers 4-6 hours of teaching, and hands-on learning: students will create 4-5 items ranging from screwdrivers, chisels, hooks, and finally topping their experience with a knife made from railroad spikes. You will learn how to build your own low cost forge, find low cost and creative ways to purchase anvils and all the needed tools to truly begin this wonderful life-long hobby. My promise to you is you will learn and do, not just watch me. By the end of the day roles will reverse and I will be facilitating your ideas as your confidence grows.
