Blacksmithing: How to punch ghosts and make spooky friends
In this Halloween themed class we will explore the creation of punches and chisels for use in the forging of hot steel. Each student will make one to two punches or chisels of their preferred shape and after heat treating, we will use the tools we made to sculpt small spooky medallions. No previous blacksmithing experience is required.
Please bring eye protection and wear natural fabric clothing like cotton or wool.
