About this event

Please see the link at the bottom of the description for the full class description, instructor bio and differences between this class and previous Metal Working classes. Class Description: What are different metals? How can we get them or make them? What can we do with them? In this week-long course we will explore those questions through hands on experimentation. Learning outcomes will include: - Basic forging techniques (squaring, tapering, drawing, punching, splitting, twisting, and the use of tools) - Tool-making (students should finish this class with forging tool kit including punches, chisels, and tongs) - Patinas, finishes, and sealing (chemical processes of altering the surface of the metal, painting metal surfaces, and using different types of sealants for different purposes) All of these processes will be used to show the following: chemical compositions of metals, and industrial and aesthetic applications of metalsmithing all through the way children learn best – creation and play. Kids will get to see their hands make marks and changes in metal to create something, play games to remember what metals are made of, and best of all get to play with fire (plus maybe come out with some cool burns to brag to their friends about)! So kids bring some close-toed shoes and pull your hair back and let’s get to work!
