Blacksmithing: Bottle Opener Workshop

June 12, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

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 bottle opener 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!

All costs of materials are included in the cost of the class. Dress for working in a shop and for the weather (shop is heated by a wood-burning stove only).

Please bring heavy work gloves, eye protection, and water bottle.

Number of Participants: Minimum 3, Maximum 5; Ages 16 and up

Fee: $35 per person. MCHS Members receive a 15% discount. Advanced registration required. Please call the Manitowoc County Historical Society at (920) 684-4445 to register.
