Blacksmithing: Cross Pein Hammer & Tongs – FULL

May 10, 2019 @ 8:00 am - May 12, 2019 @ 4:00 pm


Time:  8 am to 4 pm each day
Materials/studio fee:  $30 payable with registration
Meals:  Lunch featuring our farm grown food is included
Instructor:  Joel Tripp
Workshop Size:  This workshop can accommodate up to 4 students and needs a minimum of 3 to be held.


In this 3-day blacksmithing workshop students will make two of the most basic tools a blacksmith needs – a cross pein hammer and a pair of tongs.  Instructor Joel Tripp will take students through the various processes to shape the tools.  Handles will be made for the hammer so you’ll be able to use your tools at home.


This workshop is best suited for those with some experience in the managing a coal fired forge and that have some basic blacksmithing skills (drawing out, upsetting, punching, drifting, and forge welding.)  Beginners are welcome but be prepared for a challenge.
