Forging is one of the oldest known metalworking processes. To forge you use a variety of hammers to move and shape metal. In this course, we will begin with a twist forged bracelet, go on to a forged bangle and end with shaping a spoon! Imagine using your own silver spoon or giving one for a gift! There will be opportunities to set stones in your pieces too.

Students will be required to purchase their own metals, which are available at the Centre.
