Well made tools can be a pleasure to use and pleasant companions as you go about your garden tasks. In this class we will make the two most used tools in the garden - a trowel and a hoe. These will be forged from salvaged steel and attached to wooden handles. You can choose between a few styles of hoe and design the size and shape of your trowel. Handles will be provided. You will return home with tools that fit your hands and new tool making skills. This class is appropriate for the beginner blacksmith, but be prepared to be challenged. This 2-day class meets on June 6&7.
