Instructor: Dan Neville
Dates: February 9th, October 5th
In this one day workshop, students will learn how to taper, isolate, rivet, and move steel by hand forging at the anvil. The foundation of this class will be about basic techniques that show the plasticity and capability forged steel can have.
The finished meat fork is made with function and beauty in mind out of two small pieces of steel and one rivet. Design and shop safety will also be covered.
This is a great introductory class for beginners and leaves you going home with a beautiful handmade item for your kitchen or grill! This class will be a great jumping off point for the other intermediate and advanced classes offered here.
