Designed for the strong novice or intermediate smith, this class is intended to stretch your skills, and will involve four different projects, taught over 5 days. Some tooling will be provided, some will have to be made before the projects can be attempted. The projects are fussy by design and will provide the catalyst for many expletives and sharp intakes of breath! If you are looking to improve your skills, this class may be for you. Stake repousse, large forge welds, forging to dimension and tool-making with heat treatment are the subjects to be taught. If you have enrolled in the Mastering the Fundamentals class with Mark Aspery, consider staying on another week and progressing with your skills and experience.
Tuition $700. Member Tuition $650. Materials Fee $150.
NOTE: Hard shoes and long pants are required for student safety.
