Would you like to try blacksmithing on a gas forge? Dave will show you how to operate a gas propane forge and how to use basic tools (anvil, hammers, tongs, etc.). You will learn forging skills like tapering, drawing out, scrolling, twisting, and upsetting. Dave will demonstrate each stage with plenty of hands-on time to practice.
Class projects include making practical hooks, decorative leaves, and a special project to utilize techniques learned on the first day. You’ll leave with the knowledge of safe forging techniques and the ability to move on to more advanced projects.
