This five week course introduces the old world craft of blacksmithing.* Here, the student learns the fundamentals of the trade: Shaping, forming, tapering, flattening, twisting and punching.

This class is the perfect introduction for those with an interest in moving metal or those who have merely dabbled in the past.
