Beginner Blacksmith – CANCELLED
April 18 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm$175.00
Learn blacksmithing fundamentals from Joe Vachon, the Season 6 Forged In Fire Champion, in this 1 day, hands on coarse. Safety, body mechanics, tools, and the working properties of hot and cold steel will be addressed, as well as various techniques, such as: tapering, scrolling, shouldering, drilling, and riveting will be taught through the creation of your very own rack with 3-5 hooks (for hanging coats, towels, keys, etc…) Any time left over at the end of the workshop is yours to create something with your new found skill-set, such as (but not limited to) a decorative hook, fire poker, meat turner, necklace pendent, or an experimental piece. One hour lunch break.
