Have you ever wanted to learn blacksmithing? Come try your hand at forging iron at Cleveland Blacksmithing located in Cleveland's historic neighborhood of Ohio City. Join us for a full day action-packed workshop that is a combination of all of our three introductory classes! Get the most out of one awesome Saturday of at-the-anvil instruction and quickly advance to intermediate classes.

>> This is a one-time all day Saturday class meeting from 9:30am to 4:30pm. Participants should be able to attend the full session. No previous metalworking experience necessary. Lunch and beverages provided.*

— Topics covered will be:

1. “Get your hands hot”: Learn your way around a blacksmith shop including general safety practices, learning to light a forge, and the basic tools used in this age old craft. We'll go over basic form of forging iron; heating, stance at the anvil and hammer swing.You'll take your first crack at hammering hot metal on an anvil!

2. “Taper & Twist”: Get down to the business of forging and making a point. Mostly at-the-anvil instruction. Make a few useful wall hooks and get started on a few more utilitarian pieces like fire pokers, candle holders, etc. Have a first try at twisting a hot iron bar.

3. “Bending & Scrolling”: Learn continued basics of decorative shaping and apply them to coming away with a few more awesome household pieces! A variety of traditional snub-end, fishtail, and Art Nouveau scrolls will be discussed. Other bending/shaping topics to be discussed on request.
