Hooked on Blacksmithing with Alex Bond
This is a hands-on and project-based blacksmithing class. First, this class will focus on fire and teach you how to maintain the perfect orange glow of metal that you dream about. Then, we will explore techniques like drawing out a taper, the blissful twist, and bending and curving our metal. Ultimately, participants will design and blacksmith their own hook (or hooks) for tools, household things like keys, pots over a fire, etc.
This class is designed for people who have little or no experience. Those with metalworking or blacksmithing experience may appreciate the next class in this series: Master of the Jig. Please wear long pants, boots, and long sleeves. Safety glasses a must! All proceeds from this class will be donated to the MakerLab!
