Instructor: Jason Reed. Brown

Pratt offers one of the few blacksmithing programs in the region. Blacksmithing, or forging, is about transforming and shaping mild steel through the use of heat. Using basic techniques such as hammering, twisting, tapers, bends, and splits, you will have the opportunity to create sculptural and functional objects. Everyone is welcome, whether you're interested in taking more advanced blacksmithing classes or you just want a basic understanding of the process. Prerequisite: None Supply Fee $35
