August 17th from 1 – 3pm
Combine your newfound blacksmithing skills into a single project in our Advanced Blacksmithing class. Blend twists, bends, and an understanding of temperature to steel color to create a fireplace poker to take home with you.
What you’ll learn:
Continuing on the beginning blacksmithing workshop, attendees will focus on bends and twists on a single piece of work. In addition, bringing the steel to a point will be covered to finish the project into a poker.
Workshop attendees will need to be properly outfitted to attend this course. This includes: closed toed leather boots, a long sleeve shirt, long pants, and a way to secure long hair are mandatory.
Safety equipment including protective glasses, gloves, and hearing protection are provided by MAKE Santa Fe.
