Can You Forge That? with Andrew Kyte April 11 - 15, 2022

about this workshop

Often people associate the skills of a blacksmith with working hot iron or steel, but there are other metals that can be worked hot. In this class Andrew will walk students through various nonferrous materials that can be used by the blacksmith. Bronze, copper, and aluminum will all be explored in the shop to strengthen your skill set and understanding of what metals can be successfully forged. Welding and brazing of these materials as well as surface finish and patinas will be covered. This workshop would be beneficial to those interested in nautical hardware as well as people looking to broaden their vocabulary in functional and sculptural applications.
