Learn to forge weld and make pattern laminated steel suitable for use in knives or jewelry. We focus on manipulated patterns which include ‘ladder, butterfly, raindrop, chevron, and twisted straight layer.’ This course is suitable for the ambitious novice or the experienced beginner. We do not recommend this course to young smiths (10 – 14 yr) unless that smith is ready for some serious physical work! This course has been completed successfully by young smiths in the past. Those smiths have been really motivated. Class includes safe shop practices, fire management, efficient hammer techniques and basic forging. All safety equipment and materials provided. 9am – 4pm both days
