Iron Spring Concentration

Attention to Detail

In this workshop you’ll learn the fundamentals of working with hot metal. From forging to fabricating, beginning and experienced metalworkers will learn to transform their ideas into well-crafted objects. Using drawings, maquettes, and layout skills, we’ll troubleshoot design and develop an eye for detail as we create functional and sculptural objects. Along with all aspects of forging, we’ll cover multiple cold-working processes, welding, and fabrication methods. Topics will include project planning, tapering, isolating mass, joinery, and surface applications. Students should be prepared to work hard and have fun as a group and independently. Blacksmith Logan Hirsh will join us for a week as guest instructor. All levels. Code S00I
