I’m a veterinarian who recently learned the joys of pounding on hot metal. I started taking evening blacksmithing classes four years ago at the Kenosha Public Museum. I’ve taken two weekend courses at Shake Rag Alley with Hal Aavang. I’m still learning new techniques myself but I’d love to introduce more people to blacksmithing.
