Blacksmithing: Finials and Twists with Jorden Maura. #1107-0812. 2 days.
August 13 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Forge some flair into your smith work! In this two-part class we will explore several different kinds of twists and finials with which to embellish our iron. Starting with the most basic smith’s twist and fishtail scroll, students will move through ever more difficult and artful ornamentation, capping off their work with the rubik’s twist and leaf finial. The business aspect of incorporating these motifs into “sale-able” items will also be explored. In the end, everyone will go home with some fun decor!
NOTE: Hard shoes and long pants are required for student’s safety.
