BLACKSMITHING WORKSHOP – Hacienda CV
February 11 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 1:00pm on Saturday, repeating until November 4, 2023
Introductory Blacksmithing Workshop ~ every Saturday
10 am – 12 pm & 1pm – 5pm (2 hour and 4 hour workshops*)
Utilizing the same principles of metalwork used for over 3,000 years, you will take a plain piece of steel and create functional art out of it! In this class you will learn the foundation of blacksmithing then get some iron into the fire. You will leave this one-of-a-kind experience with a handmade item plus stories to share with your friends.
Wear long pants and long sleeves that you don’t mind getting dirty and preferably leather close-toed shoes. Gloves, eye, and ear protection will be provided. Children 12 years of age and older may attend with a consenting adult.
*In the 4-hour class, students get more time to practice the skill of forging. They will begin with a simple hook to get the feel for working iron, then move on to their main piece. In the 2-hour class, one project will be created.
