Students will work on three projects (one each month) including their first pair of blacksmith tongs. A limited class size and low student:teacher ratio ensures plenty of coaching as you learn.
Students must wear long pants and closed-toe shoes. Natural fiber clothing only. Students should bring comfortable eye protection and a 24-40 oz. wood-handled hammer (ball peen or the Craftsman/Vaughn blacksmith hammer - NO claw hammers!). Hearing protection, leather apron, and drinking water are recommended.
