Iron – Fall One-Week Session
September 19-25, 2021
Basics of Forging
Students in this workshop will learn the basic techniques of forging through demonstrations and practice. Assignments will guide the development of skills needed to create expressive and well-crafted sculpture or functional objects in steel. We’ll use ancient, traditional ironworking techniques to produce unique, innovative, contemporary works in metal. All levels, beginners encouraged.
