Forging a Norwegian-Styled Candle Stick

February 23, 2020 | 9am-12pm
Location: Calypso Farm Smithy

A collaboration between the Folk School and Calypso Farm and Ecology Center.

This class is based around a traditional Norwegian styled candle stick. We will explore numerous techniques to create a candle stick from 3/4 inch flat stock. From chiseling in a gap that will be opened and drifted to create a uniform ring to upsetting the stem and learning how to isolate material to our advantage, we will learn many “tricks of the trade.” The cone will be created by piening. This is a great project to hone your forging skills!

Workshop Cost: $105 (member) $125 (non-member)*
