The Art of Hammer Control

August 26 at 9:00 am - August 30 at 5:00 pm

Instructor: Aislinn Lewis

August 26-30

The ability to cleanly and accurately shape iron is central to success in the art of blacksmithing. The tools to achieve this goal are numerous, but of primary importance are the hammer, the anvil, and a trained eye. Utilitarian household objects like spatulas, spoons, and forks, while basic shapes, are great ways to train your eye and hand. This class will focus on building hammer control through making these types of cooking implements. As you work through these objects you will build confidence in your ability to use the hammer, anvil, and a few other basic tools. This class is aimed at those who want to hone their hammer skills and make a useful item in the process! Intermediate
