Experience the exciting craft of steel forging and toolmaking through demonstration and hands-on exercises in this weekend workshop. After instruction on the properties and characteristics of different metals, students work a forge and learn how to manipulate hot steel.

Demonstrations of various hammer types and the applications of different anvil designs are given. Building and operation of both gas and coke-fired forges are discussed. Students are encouraged to develop their own direction and interests in forging and toolmaking as an art form.

This class is limited to 4 students—enroll early! Class will be held at the instructor’s forging studio. Please note that this class requires that students complete a liability waiver before class begins.
