Mastering the Fundamentals of Blacksmithing with Mark Aspery. #1334-0819.
August 19 @ 9:00 am - August 23 @ 4:00 pm$125. – $700.
This class is aimed at the beginner or novice smith. Following the ABANA curriculum, we will start at the beginning and progress in difficulty during the week. Aside from the first morning, the class will be project driven, including the rose and the wizard bottle opener, among others. An emphasis will be placed on the forging and heat-treatment of the tools that you will need to carry out the next project. Blisters and a healthy appetite are all but guaranteed.
NOTE: Hard shoes and long pants are required for student’s safety.
