A blacksmith inherently distorts metal, it is the nature of the craft. In this class we will focus on stretching bending and persuading steel on its most difficult planes to look elegant, easy and unforced, despite the process. We will develop complex shapes and, looking at them as elements of sculpture, we will calculate material needs and the tool making to accomplish the forms cleanly and precisely. Students will leave with a better sense for how to visualize the movement qualities of hot steel and make tooling to accomplish their visions.

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

In this course we are going to be transforming flat patterns in to volumetric solids. The patterns will be generated by the students or adapted from an existing pattern to accommodate different methods of joinery. We'll use cold and hot connections in sheet metal and some extrusions to bring drawings into form. Topics covered will be: 1. Shop geometry 2. bending forming and rolling sheet metal 3. templates, jigs, and bucks 4. designing for hardware and when to just weld it. 5. 2-d to 3-d layout Anticipate making two to three objects ranging in scale from a coffee cup to a waste paper basket. We'll put to test the idea that if you can make it in paper you can make it in steel. Prerequisite - none. Supply fee - $45
