June 8, 2018 @ 8:00 am - June 10, 2018 @ 4:00 pm

S375

Time:  8 am to 4 pm each day
Materials/studio fee:  Included in tuition cost
Meals:  Lunch featuring our farm grown food is included
Instructor: Joel Tripp

 

In this 3-day blacksmithing workshop students will make a set of tools that any gardener will find indispensable – a hand held hoe, a cultivator, and a towel.

 

Using a coal forge and standard blacksmithing skills students will expand their knowledge of how to bend and shape metal.   The forge welding process will be used to create the shank and ferrule of each tool. Roughed out hardwood handles will be provided and customized during the workshop to complete each tool.

 

This workshop is best suited for people who have experience in the managing a coal fire and the basic blacksmithing skills of drawing out, upsetting, punching, drifting, and forge welding.
