Blacksmithing II (2-day)

blacksmithing02

2 day class

Basic Instruction using the Traditional Blacksmiths Forge

In this two-day class, we will reinforce, build upon and expand the skills you learned in Blacksmithing I, as you further develop confidence and accuracy in your work.

Each student will build and complete a simple fire-place toolset that includes a fireplace poker, shovel and broom. You will also make a cold chisel. We will guide you through the forging of the ornamental leaves that will grace the handle of each tool and introduce you to forge welding, as you forge out the end of the fireplace poker. In addition to deepening and strengthening the skills you learned in the previous class, new skills you will learn include working plate steel, simple forge welding and working and heat treating carbon steel.

To begin learning about tool making, in the class, you will forge a cold chisel from a length of oil field sucker rod. We will explain physical metallurgy and the process of heat treating that is used to transform the chisel into a useful and durable tool.

As in the Blacksmithing I workshop, we encourage students to wear leather shoes and bring gloves and safety glasses.

This class is from 9 a.m – 5 p.m.

Note: Since our workshops are specifically designed for adults, an individual must be 18 years old to enroll in a class. All students should wear practical work clothes and shoes. For your safety, we ask that you do not wear shorts or sandals to a class you are attending.

All our classes close 24 hours before the class date with the exception of classes that start on Monday, which will close the Friday before. If there's a class that closed early that you'd like to attend, please call us at 254-754-9620 to check for availability.
