BL: Blacksmithing Open Office Hours & Practice Sessions
May 1, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT
After you’ve taken Blacksmithing 101, continue learning and having fun with blacksmithing. Make new stuff or continue a project. One of our experienced smiths will be there to help.
Look up fun stuff on Instructables and youtube. Most of the time, you end up with something really cool, and you always have fun trying. You will leave with whatever metal you have beaten into submission.
Cost covers use of propane, materials and tools.
FREE for audience and observers!! Just stop by. This is a great time to listen and learn if you would like to try it at a future event. Or come by to see the awesomeness.
Prerequisite: Green Orientation Sign off Class AND Blacksmithing 101 sign of
No prerequisites for coming to view and ask questions!!

Blacksmithing NEW POLICY: Minors under 16 years who have permission to use the tool from the steward MUST work together with a parent or designated adult who must supervise and participate alongside the minor. The adult must take Blacksmithing 101. The adult is responsible for the safety of the minor and must be close enough to physically intervene in case of danger.
Required safety items: You must wear safety glasses (we have some tonbirrow ifnyou need them), leather shoes, and 100% non-synthetic clothes (cotton, wool, leather). You will not be able to blacksmith if you are wearing synthetic clothing.
We suggest you mark your personal gloves and glasses since they are frequently forgotten at the lab.
Bring water and stay hydrated.
