This class is designed to introduce a beginner to the fundamentals of smithing techniques: drawing down, upsetting, cutting, slitting, punching, twisting and bending. The class also seeks to impart a solid understanding of the various ways hot steel can be shaped with just a few simple tools. Students will be introduced to the Hofi Ergonomic Forging Method, which allows for very fast and accurate forging with less effort and strain on the body. We will make, among other things, wall hooks, square-cut nails, leaves, a chisel, a bottle-opener, and a fire-poker.

Each student will have his/her forging station, complete set of tools, constant access to a forge, and unlimited stock.

The price of the class is $360, which includes all materials and safety equipment. This class is limited to 8 students.
