5-Day Intensive: Fundamentals of Blacksmithing: In this 5-day workshop, students will learn and practice fundamentals of coal and gas fire management, tapering, tool making, scrolling, punching and riveting. 

This course will cover the fundamentals. Topics will include proper orientation of coal and gas forges; learning about different hammer blows and how to use them efficiently; tapering and material isolation; scrolling and bending; and many other topics. This class is not a project based class, so while you may leave with your samples you may not end up with a completed project. The focus of this class is on building forging skills. Students may work on personal projects utilizing the covered skills at the end of the class. (Open to all skill levels)

Candace started blacksmithing in 2006 and has explored many aspects of working metal. Through her explorations she has developed a strong belief that regardless of what you smith a strong foundation in the basic techniques is critical to success.
