Introductory Blacksmithing Course | Two Smiths | Saturday, 13. January 2018

Students will be lead - step-by-step - through a series of fundamental forging techniques that will enable them to produce two finished projects: a toasting fork and a door handle. Samples of traditional and contemporary forged work will be shown. We’ll also discuss ergonomics and functionality of each object. Students will first draw the object they’ll be forging as a way of encouraging close observation of general shape, proportions, surface texture, and various forged details.

No previous metalworking or drawing experience is necessary. All that’s required is a sense of curiosity and a willingness to learn.

Materials and safety equipment are all provided.
