THE ART OF BLACKSMITHING
NO SCHEDULED DATES
Blacksmithing is an ancient form of alchemy, bringing together fire, metal and air to birth functional and beautiful items that we depend upon in our daily lives. Instructor Justin Starting has been inspired by the way tribal blacksmiths use the simplest methods and materials to forge the highest quality tools. He believes that we can look to their traditional relationships with blacksmithing to bring consciousness and harmony back to our connection with metal.
The purpose of this class is to give people the basic blacksmithing skills to become self-sufficient in their practice. Through this hands on experience of working with fire and metal, students will learn how to take recycled or bought steel and forge it into a functional tool.

Beautiful footwear made sustainably from natural materials has been worn by human beings for thousands of years. In this class students will create a pattern customized to their own feet, and learn to craft a pair of short moccasins using genuine brain-tanned buckskin and vegetable tanned leather. This will be a two piece style moccasin, with a harder sole for longer wear. The foundations of this pattern can later be applied for making many other styles of moccasins, including boots of all lengths.
