In this class you will learn how to forge a spatula with a steel plate and a simple blacksmith handle. The primary focus of the class will be the techniques involved in hole punching with precision and riveting. The bending skills learned in the LVL 1 class will be expanded upon to allow you to make a centered handle with simple decorations. The greatly self enabling skill of riveting is the ability to attach items together without welding. This skill opens up a whole new world of options for a blacksmith. Students who excel will be encouraged to add extra details to their project. This can include making a leaf as part of the handle decoration or maybe adding some cool twists to the body of the spatula. Techniques learned will include: making a set down, spreading evenly, hole punching, riveting, more advanced bending, scrolling or possibly leaf making.
