Blacksmithing: Weathervanes - 320

425.00

What would look better on your shop than a hand forged weathervane you’ve made yourself? In addition, this project is a great way to improve on some basic blacksmithing and toolmaking skills. In the class we’ll be making a weathervane based upon an example that was in the Jim Sorber collection. It’s a great piece of folk art that has a whimsical nature.
This piece involves a lot of blacksmithing technique. We’ll be making some simple tooling. And,  there’s forge welding, riveting, upsetting, splitting, punching, drifting, bending and a bit of sheet metal work to boot. Some experience in basic blacksmithing is needed.
This is a fun project and one that you can admire for years to come!
