You will learn the basics of forging iron with a coal fired forge. You'll meet me at my shop, and with a hammer in hand you'll learn the basics of the art of blacksmithing. You will square, taper, twist, bend, curl, and flatten the metal into your own unique wall hook.
I am a blacksmith/bladesmith with over eight years of forge experience. I was a semi-finalist on History Channel "Forged in Fire," season 5, episode 13, "Horseman's Axe". I have recently started a "Learn to Forge" experience here at my forge. It has been a huge success. I believe I offer a truly one of a kind, unique experience .
All materials and equipment will be furnished by LLForge, including safety glasses and gloves as well as forging materials.
The experience is conducted at my forge, nestled in a quiet backwoods setting near beautiful Lake Michigan.
This is a rustic hands on work experience. Be prepared to get dirty! There are numerous dangers including smoke, fire, loud noises, sharp objects, and more.
