Females at the Forge
The class is designed to give women 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 one decorative item 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). Bring eye protection and a water bottle.
Once you’ve completed this workshop you’ll be eligible to participate in the follow-up Advanced Blacksmithing workshop.
