Adult Education Program: Blacksmithing Basics

participants work on projects in the blacksmith shop

Details

Date:
Saturday, November 4
Time:
9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Advanced registrations required.

The class is designed to give someone with little or no metal working skills as a hands-on, fun “be a blacksmith for a day” experience. Explore the basics of forge work in a blacksmith shop while making a decorative iron project to take home. Topics will include safety, tools and equipment, and beginning techniques for shaping metal. Small class size guarantees lots of one-on-one instruction and lots of time at the forge! Dress for working in a shop with a dirt floor, and for the weather (shop is heated by a wood-burning stove only!). Bring eye protection and a water bottle. All costs of materials are included in the cost of the class.

  • Saturday, November 4 from 9:00am-Noon
  • Blacksmith (Check in at Visitor Center)
  • Number of Participants: Minimum 3, Maximum 5; Ages 18 and up
  • Fee: $60.00
