This workshop is part of the Melbourne Australian Blacksmithing Festival 2019
This course is designed especially for women to experience the art of blacksmithing for the first time. No previous experience required. The one-day program will provide an overview of the practice—primary tools used, safety precautions, creative possibilities and most importantly a hands-on practical exercise.
Participants will be taught how to light and manage a coke fired forge and will be introduced to some of the fundamental techniques (drawing out, bending, twisting). Learning project is designed to enable everyone to take home a completed hand-forged piece at the end of the day! The course is limited to nine persons.
