Learn the mysterious art of forge welding. In this class you will be taught the techniques involved in welding multiple pieces of metal together using the forge. This class will focus on the environment within your coal fire that is necessary to allow the metals to bind properly and what preparations to the metal are required. The proper way to strike the weld with your hammer will also be taught. Hint, it doesn’t involve barbarian smashing it so that you get to see that cool shower of sparks. If you’d like to beat your head repeatedly into a wall and throw your money away trying to self teach yourself this skill then go right ahead. It’ll be fun they said. Or you could take this class, cut off 6 months worth of headaches and open up the opportunities to begin producing your own Damascus iron work.
