This course serves as an introduction to basic primitive black-smithing techniques. This is an intro level class with no prior experience necessary; however it is also an excellent way to refine technique, correct bad habits, get in needed ‘dirt time’ or the change the way you move with metal.
Blacksmithing tools, knives and homestead equipment is an important part of a more self-reliant lifestyle.
This course is a required class as part of the Off-Grid Engineering Program.
Students will learn:
*the proper use of tools and equipment

*testing to determine the working properties of a given steel
*essential forging techniques including flattening, stretching, rounding, bending, beveling and tapering
