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.
Metal & Coppersmithing: Create objects from copper and other non-ferrous metals by using various tools to hammer, bend, shape and cut. Non-ferrous metals are generally more malleable than ferris metals like steel, and can often be worked without heating. Coppersmithing classes at Arc + Flame are available as Samplers and Date Nights.
NOTE: Students under the age of 16 MUST contact Arc + Flame Blacksmithing Director (Candace Martens) for an evaluation prior to enrolling in a smithing class. Candace can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 585-617-9644. Interested Students MUST COMPLETE this underage student APPLICATION prior to meeting with Blacksmithing Director.
