Description

Everyone loves spending time around a firepit! So why not forge your own firepit poker (a longer, sturdier version of a fireplace poker)?

This class focuses on creating “turkey foot” pokers that require forge welding, one of the oldest blacksmithing processes that involves fusing metal together without electricity or shielding gas. This class will also delve into tapering, twisting, and bending steel.

This class is intended for intermediate to advanced beginners. Students should have a fair amount of previous blacksmithing experience and grasp the basics of forging. Those with little or zero forging experience might struggle more and need to scale back their expectations. That said, you’ll learn a lot from the additional challenges. Forge welding is a tricky process for inexperienced beginners (but you’ll still learn a lot!). All tools and materials are provided.
