Intro to Blacksmithing: Forged Leaves

August 4 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
Practice all the basics of hammer control in this fun leaf-forging workshop!

Students will learn some of the fundamentals of blacksmithing: drawing and spreading material, twisting, isolation, and other basics. We will talk about hammer control, basic tooling, items needed to set up a beginner shop, and other concepts useful to the new Smith. This is a great crash course in getting started with blacksmithing!

Please wear cotton or non synthetic clothes that you don’t mind getting very dirty, full-length pants, and close-toed shoes.

Age 16+ (Under 18 MUST be accompanied by a guardian)

Brenden Bohannon is a full-time blacksmith, bladesmith, and lifelong artist hailing from Johnson City Tennessee. The opportunity to appear on the History Channel’s “Forged in Fire” led Brenden to become a full-time teaching Smith. He focuses on iron age designs and functional pieces that will last a lifetime.
