2024 Power forging Class

Power Forging Class 2024

In this class, we will take two days to cover the basic operations of the Big BLU power hammer and press. We follow the BLU element forging curriculum. This will give hands-on experience with many elements that will build your skills in freeform forging as well as general power forging. Each morning, we will start at 8AM where you will work your way through the curriculum by forging elements on different machines with varying dies while observing the work of the instructor and other students. We break for lunch around noon. After lunch, the forge is open for you to practice the skills you have learned and explore the tooling we have available to you. The forge closes at 4:30PM.
