MB2413 June 22 & 23, 2013 (10am - 5pm) Saturday/Sunday (The Good Forge)

Students interested in blacksmithing will gain a working knowledge of the fundamentals in this enjoyable weekend workshop. Basic techniques will be covered, including use of tools, safety, the forge, controlling a fire, reading the temperature of the metals, and shaping. Special emphasis will be placed on gaining a solid foundation of hammer techniques and use, handling hot steel and fire control. Students can expect to complete one (possibly more) pieces during this workshop, and will have gained a working knowledge about the forge that can be built upon for future explorations of both process and object design. A studio/materials fee of $45 is due at time of registration. Teens are welcome, but please call in advance of registration for details.
