This blacksmithing class has been designed to meet the needs of students currently studying from home. This class is a full semester with a solid curriculum based on the science of metal.

Students in this course will use metal and other related materials to create small sculptures, utilitarian items, and tools. Students will use a coal forge and learn a variety of different hand tools and other equipment such as hammers, belt sanders, and drills. They will explore various techniques as tapering, joining, and heat treating. There will be class discussions upon group completion of projects which will reinforce the vocabulary of the smith and concepts used to create their art. Projects will include coat hooks, key chain leaves, bottle openers, and a knife with one open project at the end of the semester.

This course is for the student who is committed and serious about blacksmithing. This is not for the dabbler. There will be research homework assigned and a student evaluation will be given at the end of the semester.
