Blacksmithing: Tongs (2-day)

tongs

2 day class

Tong Making Basics

In this two-day class, we will explore the basic techniques of forging blacksmiths’ tongs. Since every smith needs tongs (maybe we should say lots of tongs or at least one pair for every stock size that he uses), being able to make the tools that you need is important. We will go through the process of making tongs three different ways and explore different jaw styles that will enable you to hold multiple projects and stock configurations: flat, round, square and irregular pieces.

Participants in this workshop should have completed our two-day blacksmithing workshop, Blacksmithing II.

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.
