3-Night Simple Padlock: Join us for an introduction to the art of lock making as we create simple but functional padlocks. In this 3 evening class students will learn the basics of lock functionality and construction. Creation of parts will utilize several processes including forging, filing and chisel work. (Open to all levels. Forging experience is a plus.)
4-Night Make Your Own Tableware: Learn to create a beautiful table layout to show off during the holidays. Students will have the opportunity to create a candle holder, trivet, centerpiece and carving fork out of metal by hot forging. The class will go over the basic operations needed for each item. Note: Blacksmithing classes in general are physically and mentally exhausting and this will be a fast moving class so some forging experience is highly recommended. Beginners or those not used to the pace may not complete all 4 projects so choose your favorite first. (Open to all levels. Forging experience is highly recommended.)
(NOTE: Above are examples of various topics offered, however each class focuses on only one. The topic of each class is listed with the corresponding date.)
Arc + Flame Blacksmithing Night Classes are an excellent way to learn and explore the various aspects of metal working. Our experienced instructors will use a combination of lecture, demonstration and hands-on instruction to enhance your learning experience.
