    Geared for beginners with little or no metal-working experience, this skills-oriented blacksmithing class will teach students about fire, shop safety, tools, equipment, and basic forging skills: drawing out, twisting, forge welding, punching and scroll work. Students will finish a few small sample items that they will take home.

    Participants must wear cotton or wool clothing (no synthetic materials) and closed-toe shoes. Students also must bring their own eye and ear protection. Costs of materials are included in the cost of the class. All blacksmithing classes are a single seven-hour class with a lunch break. You are welcome to bring your lunch or come and go as you please within your seven-hour class period. Must be 17 years old and up to participate.
