Never felt the vibration of hammer on hot steel? Discover the craft and art of blacksmithing by learning the skills and techniques of forging leaves. Beginning to intermediate students will learn the art of creating leaf-design metalwork at the Jacksonville Center forge. Start by making a fire and learning to use the anvil. Before long, students will be forging their first leaves, discovering along the way blacksmithing techniques such as “drawing out,” “necking,” “spreading,” and “swaging.” Develop a feel for the anvil and hammer while adding details to the leaves. Expect to forge several styles of leaves, and forge weld them together into a bouquet or tree of life. Beginning to Intermediate
