Blacksmithing for Silversmiths

Instructor: Michael Brehl
Blacksmithing for Silversmiths
Blacksmithing for Silversmiths by Michael Brehl

Learn to make your own tools. Mushroom, blowhorn, anticlastic, and raising stakes can be made, as well as chasing tools and a stonesetting jig. If participants complete one blowhorn stake and one mushroom stake, the cost of the class is far less than the retail cost of those two stakes. Cutting, forming, welding, grinding, sanding, and polishing techniques are demonstrated. Prior jewelry or silversmithing experience is required. Welders, grinders, and other large power tools are used. This workshop is physically demanding and also requires reasonably good eyesight and depth perception. A materials fee is payable to the instructor, approximately $70, but varies depending on the material used. Registered students should contact the instructor at least one week prior to class to discuss individual material needs.
