    Architectural Bracket

    $175.00
    Prerequisite: Any Discovery Class Date: August 14, 2021 Time: 9 AM - 3 PM Location: Adam's Forge Do you want to expand your skills as a blacksmith? This is a class that can help! Much of the beauty of hand-forged ironwork comes from the use of traditional joinery. In this class, we’ll build on the basic skills introduced in the Discovery class, such as tapering, twisting and scrolling. To these, we’ll add hot cutting, punching and riveting, to really expand the possibilities of what you can make. You’ll start with 3 pieces of steel that you’ll forge, taper and twist. You’ll also learn how to hot cut, punch, then rivet and assemble them into a wall-mounted bracket.  Let your imagination go wild!  Will it hold a hanging lamp, a banner or plants?   This bracket is both decorative and functional.  And what a great personalized gift! Under the guidance of Adam’s Forge Instructor John Drayer, students will expand their craft and develop their understanding of more advanced blacksmithing projects. Pre-requisite: we require that students take at least a Discovery class prior to this class. While not required, we’ve found that students who’ve also taken 2-3 project classes and have developed some confidence with hammer control will have a more satisfying experience in this class. The class runs for 6 hours with a one-hour lunch break.

    Cheese Slicer

    $175.00
    Prerequisite: Any Discovery Class Date: July 24, 2021 Time: 9 AM - 3 PM Location: Adam's Forge Instructor: Gary Standke In this class we will make tools for the kitchen or any party. These wired cheese slicers come in both a "Handled" and “C” form. We will forge them from mild steel and apply a wax finish. Then we will string it with a fine stainless-steel wire so you can slice through any cheese you can find. We start by drawing out the steel as you did in the Discovery Day Class. Then we will bend and twist the handle, followed by forming it into a comfortable shape. Finally, we will review the different styles of the arms and you will choose the depth and width which best fits the blocks of cheese you plan to slice. Once the shaping of the slicer is completed, a wax finish is applied to protect the steel from kitchen abuse. Finally, a stainless-steel wire will be attached and tensioned appropriately to slice your cheese. After you finish the handled Cheese Slicer, we will show you how to make a "C" form slicer. You will then have no problem making the “C” form of cheese slicer using what you have learned in the class. Much fun to be had by all and you will have some unique tools you will definitely want to make again and again as gifts for all your friends. Skills learned: Tapers, twisting, bending over the horn, and finishing. Student fee of $175 includes the material for both cheese slicers. This class runs from 9 AM-3 PM, with a one-hour break for lunch.

    Fire Poker

    $175.00
    Prerequisite: Any Discovery Class Date: August 1, 2021 Time: 9 AM - 3 PM Location: Adam's Forge Are you interested in building your repertoire of fundamental blacksmithing skills and techniques? Then, this class is for you! In this class, students will learn to forge a fire poker. Trust us when we say that it's a pretty rad addition to your project line-up. Perfect for camping or if you have a fireplace or backyard fire-pit at home! The fire poker project class is specifically designed to introduce students to two fundamental blacksmithing techniques - forge welding and forging to dimension. Students will learn how to forge weld to create the poker end of the fire poker. Forge welding is the process of welding two pieces of metal together using heat and hammer and is an essential technique for when you need to join metal pieces together. It is a tricky process and our instructor will lead you through the process step-by-step to be able to successfully replicate the process on your own. In addition, students will learn to forge the handle of the fire poker to dimension. This is another essential skill and we'll teach you the tips and tricks necessary to be successful.   This class is most appropriate for the advancing smith with an interest in building skills and technique. While it is not required, we have found that students who have taken at least 3-5 project classes with us before starting this project are more successful and get more out of this class. All students must have taken a Discovery class with us. The class runs from 9 am to 3 pm with a break for lunch. Instructor: Leif Bennett

    Iron Age Knife

    $175.00
    Prerequisite: Any Discovery Class Date: August 28, 2021 Time: 9 AM - 3 PM Location: Adam's Forge Spring for a Viking means it is time to prepare for an adventure. In this class you will make a small (about 4 inches total length) knife and "fork" no person in the Iron Age would want to be without. This is this perfect first knife for those with little blacksmithing experience and also a great project for those with more experience. You will be making the knife of mild steel yet hardening it in a secret Viking way which will allow for a razor edge. Once hardened we will move on to sharpening and honing. Your tuition includes material to make 2 knives. Once your knife is done you will be the envy of all your fellow Norsemen and Norsewomen! Skills learned in this class: Students should have the experience or motivation to deal with the challenge of moving metal to a very specific dimension, as well at the challenge of holding difficult shapes while striking them.
