Introduction to Blacksmithing

This three hour class is designed to introduce students to the basics of blacksmithing: the tools and equipment, and how to use them safely.

Students will be able to try out a variety of processes blackmiths use including forging, spreading, scrolling, twisting, chiseling, and punching.

This class is a prerequisite to Module I- Points Disciplines

SCHEDULE: http://masscollective.eventbrite.com/

Module I - Point Disciplines

This module is made up of four, three hour long classes that take place once per week for four weeks.

The intention of the points discipline is to improve body mechanics, arm strength, and hand-eye coordination.

The disciplines are a wonderfully meditative action and once mastered they can help you find a good familiar place to re-adjust your body after not forging for a while, or prep you as an all inclusive warm up for body, mind, and eye before taking on new or complicated forging in the fire. Making all 4 points at the beginning of your day sets you right.

This class is a prerequisite to Module II - Basic Tools

Module II - Basic Tools

This module is made up of four, three hour long classes that take place once per week for four weeks.

Learn the basics of tool smithing, the hardening and tempering process, whilst integrating the forging of the disciplines into a real world application. In doing so make your first four forged steel tools.

The advantage of making your own tools is knowing what steel they are made from. How to re-harden them when they get de-tempered, and even reshape them to the requirements of use brings you into a completely new world. Understanding your steel is probably one of the most important aspects of forging. Knowing how to anneal or de- temper, harden and temper steel makes the blacksmith the champion of his medium.
