We'll use traditional blacksmithing techniques to make a distinctly non-traditional item. We'll work an iron bar with fire and water, hammer and tongs, vise and anvil and learn about heat control, hammer control, and self-control while creating an iron bracelet with a tapered, sinuous motif.
Techniques will include forging (drawing out, tapering, square-octagonal-round), bending, twisting, and planning ahead.
