This 4-week-long curriculum encompasses a comprehensive set of hands-on skills and practical knowledge for students in the age group of 12-17
This course is being offered to both homeschoolers as well as public and private school student who may benefit from the opportunity of earning credit hours towards shop class credit on their transcripts or to any young student who simply would like to acquire these skills and have the time available to attend.
The curriculum focuses on blacksmithing fundamentals. The students will also learn the science behind the practical craft such as basic metallurgy, physics and chemistry pertaining to the subject matter. There will be recommended books and videos to be read and watched and students will be regularly quizzed on the knowledge obtained. Students will gain a strong intro level skill set in blacksmithing with traditional forging techniques and learn to forge with confidence while completing projects independently with hands on instruction.
The course will also cover safety in a metal workshop, and proper hammer-technique. With the skills learned our students will taper, scroll, punch and twist metal into functional and decorative shapes. Each student will have the opportunity to complete multiple projects.
