A class dedicated to beginner blacksmiths. Start to build your toolkit; the skills, knowledge and tools for you to continue the craft
Choose either tongs or hammer to make in this one day class:
Tongs are an essential tool for forging. Make a pair of tongs using the method I use and some of the tools required in this one day class.
Punch, drift and forge a billet of glowing hot steel to produce a hammer that will forever be yours. Work as a striker/director team with classmates to shape your blacksmith banger. Make a cross pein, straight pein, or rounding hammer up to 3.5 pounds
One day tong making class can be hosted from either the the Taupo or Auckland workshop. Classes start at 9am and usually run until 5pm. Further information/instruction will be sent upon inquiry.
