Date: October 1, 2021
Time: 6 PM – 10 PM
Location: Adam’s Forge
This beautiful rose is made from a single bar of steel. In this class, Adam’s Forge instructor Amanda Kazarian will lead you on a journey of discovery in which you’ll learn to design, plan the sequence of steps and then forge the stem and petals from a single bar of steel. In this great follow-up to the Discovery class, you’ll learn more advanced hammer techniques to draw out the individual petals. The magic starts when the bar is rolled into the rosebud form. Once you have these basics down, you can experiment with variations and create a bouquet of flowers.
These make great gifts!
This class runs from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Pre-requisite: Any Discovery class
Metalworking involves a certain amount of inherent risk. Many of the tools and techniques used at Adam’s Forge are capable of causing injury. Tools can burn, cut, and abrade. These are merely examples and not a complete list of dangers. If we are all aware and use safe practices we can minimize those dangers, hence the need for a safety policy. Each smith is responsible for their own safety as well as the safety of others nearby. Participants must have instructor clearance before they use any tool. The minimum age to register for this class is 12 years old. All students between the ages of 12 and 17 must be accompanied by an adult while at the Forge.
HYDRATION: If you’re not sweating you’re probably not doing it right. Please bring something non-alcoholic to drink. Water works perfectly!
PROTECTIVE CLOTHING (COTTON, WOOL, or LEATHER): Nonflammable material is REQUIRED at all times. Tee shirts and jeans are perfect.
FOOTWEAR (LEATHER, COTTON): Nonflammable and with the toes covered to protect the feet from the constant production of hot and sharp metal fragments which rain down on the feet constantly is REQUIRED at all times. A steel toe is optional and provides protection against a dropped hammer or work piece. Boots, with the pants outside the boot top will prevent the hot and sharp metal fragments from getting in and burning your feet.
Tools and equipment are provided without extra charge.
Eye protection is mandatory. Please bring your own safety glasses, or we can provide a new unused pair at no additional cost.
Gloves are optional. We recommend that you bring a pair in case you have trouble getting hot pieces in and out of the forge. If you decide you need a pair on the day of your class you can purchase them from Adam’s Forge for $5.00.
