Introductory blacksmithing classes teach the basic techniques of heating metal until it becomes pliable enough to shape with hand tools, such as a hammer, anvil and chisel. You’ll learn five basic smithing operations: drawing, shrinking, bending, upsetting and punching, and you’ll make several small pieces of your own. Advanced classes introduce specialized skills in bladesmithing, forge welding and ornamental ironwork, and there’s a special workshop taught by women for women.
