    Iron Age Knife

    $175.00
    Prerequisite: Any Discovery Class or Letter Opener class Date: January 15, 2022 Time: 9 AM - 3 PM Location: Adam's Forge In this class, Adam’s Forge instructor Will Larranaga will help equip you for a Viking adventure by teaching you to make a small iron age knife.  Not only is this an attractive tool, it’s also a pleasure to make, especially for those with little blacksmithing experience.  One of the advantages of this design is that it’s a one-piece knife; you don’t have the extra work of creating and attaching a handle. This enables you to bring home a beautiful and functional finished product. In this class, you’ll practice moving metal to specific dimensions, tapering and turning the beautifully curved handle.  You’ll also gain experience in learning to hold awkward shapes while striking them.  Hint: using the right tongs helps!

    Forge Welded Woven Bracelet

    $150.00
    Date: February 3, 2022 Time: 6 PM - 10 PM Location: Adam's Forge Are you ready to forge weld?  Up until modern times, this skill was a closely guarded secret.  In this class, you’ll take a single round bar and using some clever hot folding and forge welding, create a three-piece bracelet.  Adam’s Forge instructor Amanda Kazarian will demonstrate the forge welding, twisting and forming of the open basket weave and finally show you how to form it into a beautiful bracelet that you can custom fit to your liking. The skills learned in this class will easily translate to a wide variety of other items and uses. From hardware to handles to pure ornamentation, this basket weave is a classic design element you’ll want to have in your repertoire. 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 several project classes or workshops with us and/or spent time in Open Forge before starting this project are more successful and get more out of this class.  All students must have taken a Discovery class with us.
