Halloween is here and Dia De Los Muertos is nipping at its heels. Best be properly attired!

On this day, Adam’s Forge instructor Gary Standke will take you down a dark and winding path into the heart of the forge where you will make iron skulls and create a necklace, amulet, talisman or just plain scary thingy. 

We will go over tooling required, shaping the iron, using custom made punches and fullers for the facial features, options for giving it the look you want and finishing techniques.  Finally you’ll create the string and hardware for the necklace. You’ll practice the technical skills of tapering, hot cutting, slitting, punching, grinding and necklace fabrication.  At the same time, you’ll also be sculpting hot metal and assessing your progress as you work.

This class runs from 9:00 AM to 3:00PM with a break for lunch.
