This two day weekend intensive  will introduce students to blacksmithing by focusing on various forging techniques including tapering, shouldering, fullering, twisting, drifting and more. We will also cover non-forging techniques such as riveting, cutting, grinding, drilling and finishing.

The curriculum is the same as our beginning blacksmithing class, only compressed into one weekend.
