Learn the fundamental skills and blacksmithing tools needed to forge steel. Using these skills and a coal-fired forge, students will heat iron to forging temperature and with anvil, hammer, and tongs create several different decorative pieces such as nail and/or hook. No prior blacksmithing skills or knowledge is needed.
