Blacksmithing is a craft which requires practice to build skills. This class offers lots of hands-on projects to improve your hammer skills and add to your techniques. Work on two planned projects, a trivet and a set of tongs. You’ll have plenty of time to work on individual projects so bring ideas to work on. Our instructors will be available to give you all the coaching you will need while allowing you to work independently. This is a great way to enjoy the blacksmith shop and refine your skills.
The instructor for this class, John Sarge, is a full-time staff member of Tillers International and teaches many of the blacksmithing classes.
