Title:   Small Scale Forging      

Course Number:      MTLC 0033B
Campus: Boston-Fenway   
Room: TBA

Course Description:

Forging is the process of shaping metal using heat and hammering the metal usually on an anvil, but sometimes into specialized iron forms called swages or stakes until it takes the intended shape. This class will use a series of object-based projects to give students the vocabulary of forging and the ability to directly manipulate metal with fire and hammer. Students will gain an historical understanding of metals used for forging through four hands-on projects. We will begin honing skills by forging copper bracelets, then on to forging bronze fibulas, before moving into making some fundamental steel tools. The course will conclude with forging silver spoons. Level: introductory.
