Learn about the handcraft of blacksmithing and Damascus steel. In this class students will make several types of patterns of Damascus using clay. The instructor will provide inspiration and techniques for students to follow. Following the pattern making, each student is given a small steel pendant to etch. The pendants are made by our instructor out of Damascus steel. Students take home their Damascus clay patterns and etched pendant. The instructor will also offer a discount for a future workshop at his home forge or for one of his hand-crafted products.
This workshop is recommended for Adults (ages 18+).
Pre-Registration is required for this class. Purchase the class here online or at ReFIND Studio + Shop.
