Cosa farete

Come to Blacksmith Adventures and flirt with fire! Learn what its like to be a blacksmith as you hand forge your very own functional piece of art. We will guide you every step of the way as you hammer, chisel and punch the decorative details into your choice of a horse head or fish shaped bottle opener. Using long handled tongs, you will place your steel piece into the fiery forge and wait until it reaches a orange yellow color or about 1800 degrees before you pull it back out. The hotter the metal, the more malleable it is which makes it easier to hammer on! Once its hot you will have about 30 seconds to shape it before the cold steel surface of the anvil draws the heat out of your piece. Before its black, its back in the forge. Step by step, hammer stroke by hammer stroke, you will alter the metal until finally, your bottle opener is complete. Now it's ready to go to work for you opening up a cold one!

Host George Witzke has been blacksmithing and doing public demonstrations for 25 years. Regardless of age or gender, seeing a hard gray piece of steel being transformed into a piece of beautiful, functional art through heating and beating on it while fiery red is always mesmerizing. George is a patient teacher who enjoys cajoling and teasing his students as he guides them through the process of forging. George's wife and co-host, April makes the protective leather aprons you will wear during your experience.

Altri consigli

Experience is about one hour long and indoors. It is a great rainy day activity. Due to the forge fire, it can be quite warm in the shop especially in the summer. It is important to stay hydrated.
