Historic Blacksmithing - 317


Perched as we are atop the post-modern world, it is easy to simplify historic technology. This class will not only explore the processes, but also the reasons behind the ways of working iron during pre-industrial America. Using blacksmithing as a case study, this three day class will also explore researching trades through objects and documents, skill preservation, as well as public presentation. While the days will consist of shop work, the first two evening will have evening session in Tillers’ guest house as well. All blacksmiths will improve their understanding of the craft, whether their focus is contemporary or traditional forms. Museum curators, administrators and interpreters are also encouraged to attend.

Blacksmithing I and II strongly recommended.
