Now that you know the basics, it is time to put your blacksmith skills to work on a creative project. This class will use advanced skills to build a Simple Candlestick that is perfect for a gift or for your own home. Students will learn basic tong forging, and forging precise parts to fit and work together. Students need to bring leather gloves to class. Prerequisite: A Basic or Beginning Blacksmith class.
Blacksmith activities can be inherently dangerous due to hot metal, sparks, sharp objects, welding and grinding operations, as well as other activities. We recommend students use safety glasses, wear cotton long sleeve shirts, long pants, and leather high top boots.
