Beginning Blacksmithing: From Colonial Times to Present
Saturday, November 23, 2019 - 9:30am to Saturday, December 7, 2019 - 3:00pm
Come and work with Harriton Curator Bruce Gill and master blacksmith Stephen Sears, of Sears IronWorks in Ottsville, PA. You will learn about tools and fire and coal and metals. There will be a reference library of books and forged iron objects to see and handle. You will get hands-on experience in shaping small items of forged iron (steel actually), and you will go home with the product of your labor and instruction. Younger, older, or somewhere in the middle, or whether you think you have large biceps or small ones, you can participate.
Beginning Blacksmithing will be offered at Harriton House on Saturdays on these dates:
