2 day damascus making £480
In this class, you will learn how best to prepare, construct and forge your very own pattern welded (damascus) steel billet. This will be done by using 2 different grades of carbon steel. This will be yours to keep at the end of the course and can even be used in future classes. Previous forge-work experience is recommended for this course.
You will create 6 billets of steel stacked with 2 steel types. Next you will fire-weld these together using the forge and anvil. At that point, we will flatten them out and begin to combine these initial billets together to create more layers.
The 6 starting billets will eventually become 1 single billet. this can be hammered, drilled and twisted to create a variety of patterns within your steel. The steel will be yours to take home at the end of the weekend.
16+ only. Parent or guardian must be in attendance for any student under the age of 18
