SMITHING: A metalsmith is a craftsperson that creates useful items out of various metals. Smithing is one of the oldest metalworking occupations. Shaping metal with a hammer and anvil is the most prominent component of smithing. Often the hammering is done while the metal is hot, having been heated in a forge.
Blacksmithing: Create objects from steel by heating and forging the metal, and using tools to hammer, bend, and shape. Arc + Flame uses both gas and coal forges for blacksmithing classes. Keep in mind, most smithing classes are physically demanding and also hot in temperature! Blacksmithing classes at Arc + Flame are available as 3-Hour Sampler,Workshops,Night Coursesand Date Nights.
