February 9 - Tongs 1 Flat and Square Bit: Blacksmithing Intensive

200.00

February 9 - 10:30 AM - 8:00 PM (with 1 ½  hour break for lunch)

In the Tongs Intensive, we teach you how to make flat bit and square bit tongs! Over the course of the day, you’ll learn how to forge tongs on the anvil as well as use the power hammer. You’ll also learn how to assemble and align tongs appropriately for use in your home blacksmithing shop or in ours. You’ll make as many tong halves as possible, which you can then assemble at a later date.

PREREQUISITES: Having taken 4 forging classes is recommended for this intensive but not required.

Please arrive for your class at least thirty minutes before the scheduled start time. Wear non flammable (high cotton content) long sleeved shirt and long pants and closed toe shoes. Bring plenty of water and be sure to eat a hearty meal before class.  We will have a 1 ½ hour lunch break each day. Lunch is not provided. Please bring a lunch from home or plan to eat at one of the many local restaurants near the shop.
