Introduction to Blacksmithing

Saturday, November 24, 9am-4pm

Join Blacksmith Jay Sanders from J6 Forge for a fascinating introduction to blacksmithing. Participants will learn the fundamentals of blacksmithing including theory, safety and equipment basics, how to operate a forge and manipulate metals and how to draw out your material. After a lunch break (brown-bag it or head over to Grandma’s Cafe for some down-home country cooking) students will make “S” hooks or a fire poker, or both depending on time. Perfect for your home or as a holiday gift!

Students will need to bring leather gloves that fit, leather boots and safety glasses. Your safety is your responsibility!
