Forge a Set of Tongs-Metal Forging

Mon 17 Apr 5:00 pm


Mon 17 Apr 9:00 pm
Forge a set of steel tongs in one evening to elevate your blacksmithing game!

If you have your own home forge and struggle with hardware store tools or are just excited about blacksmithing and don’t know where to start this workshop is for you!

You will use the induction forge to heat and shape metal and learn to use an anvil and basic hand tools to make a set of steel tongs.

This workshop covers the basics of how to use YuKonstruct’s induction forge including safety, power settings and working with mild steel. Thanks to a small group size you will get lots of practice!

Closed-toe shoes and long sleeve non-synthetic clothing like cotton (denim) are required for this workshop. Participants may wish to bring their own leather gloves and protective eyewear.

Considered orientation and safety training for the induction forge for Yukonstruct members.
