Hearth to Table

Using mild and stainless steel, Damascus steel, and tinned copper, we’ll create utensils and vessels used in preparing, cooking, and serving food. We’ll explore hot forging, sinking and forming, forge welding, tinning, oil curing, and finishing. By combining traditional techniques with contemporary design, we’ll realize exciting and functional pieces for use in the kitchen, including spoons, spatulas, forks, knives, and cooking/serving vessels. All levels. Code 06I
