A Taste of the Forge with Steve Gurzler
Join blacksmith Steve Gurzler at the smithy for three weekday evenings. Class size will be limited to four students, so instruction can be tailored to match the students' blacksmithing skills. This class is designed to provide a basic overview of the skills and processes of the blacksmith, and will include building and maintaining a fire, heating metal to the proper temperature, basic hammer techniques, drawing, twisting, bending and cutting. More advanced skills will be taught, depending on student progress. Students can expect to complete two or more simple projects.
The class meets Thursday evenings, June 7, 14 & 21.
NOTE: Hard shoes and long pants are required for student safety. Students should be high school age and older. Parents must accompany children who are under 18 years of age.
