How to get started

Already know that blacksmithing is your thing? This is the class for you! In this class we will go over how to build a brake drum forge. We will assemble a pre engineered brake drum forge and talk about how you can build your own. After assembly we will discuss how to light and maintain a fire, different anvils, how to dress/acquire an anvil, welding, joining, etc. This class is mostly educational with limited hands on forging.
