This course will cover forge welding, lamination, mechanical joining, and tool making. A handle will be provided so students can leave with a complete tool.
This course is suitable for the ambitious novice or the experienced beginner. We do not recommend this course to young smiths (10 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.
