Blacksmith I is single semester class.

Please refer to the syllabus for important information including a project list, safety and clothing requirements.

Basic hands on skills and history of the trade will be covered in Blacksmith I. Students will learn from the very beginning so as to establish a strong understanding of the process, safety and equipment use. Only then will they then move on to more difficult work and we will determine appropriate individual projects. Safety, materials, skills, design, and tools.

Due to the nature of Blacksmithing, students that do not respect safety or teacher instructions or who intentionally put others in harms way, will be expelled from the class.

Classes will be held on Tues at 2:15 pm - 3:45 pm starting Sept 11, 2018 through Jan 8, 2019 rain or shine in the Smithy at the Farm. Students must dress for weather and safety. Refer to the website calendar for scheduled days off and vacations.

Student will maintain a digital portfolio that will be shared with the partnership and the parents. Attendance will be taken as required by the partnership. Student will complete a final project prior to the end of the semester.
