In this class students will learn to think with their hands and utilize their brains in a different way than is typical in modern society. There are many different ways to work with metal, but blacksmithing is traditionally the one most concerned with solving odd problems, problems of form, function, and fabrication. Students will be given the opportunity to solve these problems though assigned projects, which can be altered to suit individual needs and creative styles. Learn the basics of forging or build on current skills. No previous experience is required, and all tools and materials will be supplied, though it is recommended to bring your own as you advance.
This class is taught at Orange Coast College through the department of Community Education.
