RocAFC Blacksmithing Workshops are an excellent way to learn and explore blacksmithing. Our workshops run from 8:00am to 4:00pm on Saturday or Sunday. Our experienced instructors will use a combination of lecture, demonstration and hands-on instruction at the forge to enhance your learning experience. No prior experience is needed, but those who have had prior blacksmithing training are welcome.
Workshops focus on the fundamental techniques in blacksmithing. These include bending & straightening, drawing out, upsetting, twisting, punching, cutting, and hammer control. Student projects will vary each class but may include some basic forge tools to use at home, wall hooks, trivets, tongs and various other items. Returning students can email project ideas to the instructor for pre-approval.
