Forging and Toolmaking - Intermediate
This intermediate-level workshop builds on the introductory class by emphasizing more advanced stages of manipulating metal for art forms and tools, rather than fire
making. Participants should have previous experience creating a coal forge
fire and manipulating hot steel with hammer and anvil. In addition to hand-forming exercises, students will be offered the opportunity to use a power hammer after various techniques are demonstrated. Students will also discuss aesthetic possibilities and design elements such as texture, form and how to achieve various shapes.
Prerequisite: Students must have taken Vern’s “Introduction to Forging & Toolmaking” class.
This class is limited to 4 students—enroll early! Class will be held at the instructor’s forging studio. Students will receive a map upon registration and must sign a liability waiver before class begins. This is an off-site location, portable restrooms will be available for students.
Please go to: http://www.cabrillo.edu/services/extension/resources-forging-toolmaking.html for the required waiver form and map to the studio.
