Forging Tongs (March 22)


Friday, March 22, 2024

In this workshop, you’ll forge out a set of Blacksmith Tongs. Tongs are an important tool for forging and can be made to adapt to a variety of stock. We will examine different jaw structures, learn how to make controlled offsets, draw out the reins and punch the boss to complete a set.

This class will challenge your forging skills and improve your hammer control. You will leave with a new tool for your blacksmithing kit!

Students must have already completed Calypso’s Intro to Blacksmithing to take this class.

Workshop Cost: $90
