Blacksmith Artesian Show

The air was filled with ringing of hammers on anvils when Black Rock Forge of Traverse City came to visit. Welding Students were given a day of hands on demonstrations and practical skill building in the art of forging. Three blacksmith artisans, Dan, Derrick, and Larry, provided several professional demonstrations before turning the hammers over to 18 anxious students their instructor's. Students were shown the art of forge welding, bending, twisting and flattening of metal and all were able to complete a simple project. New opportunities and friendships were forged with everyone throughout the afternoon.
