Beginner Blacksmithing – This class is an introduction to using the forge, hand tools, vise, and anvils. It will start you on the path to developing the core skills of smithing: drawing, tapering, hot cutting, hot punching, forge welding, bending, twisting, scrolls and leaves. All materials and supplies are included.
Flavius Brinsfield (featured in the photo above) provides hands-on instruction in the Woodland Forge at Lutherlyn, guiding students through their blacksmithing journey. Flavius has been shaping iron for nearly 50 years. With a love of fire, iron and hammers he pursues the tradition of the village blacksmith. "It's fun and mesmerizing to get something hot, beat it into submission, and come up with cool stuff that is useful, practical and pretty."
