Blacksmithing is the craft of applying intense heat and pressure to metal to manipulate it into a desired form. Join us at NewMakeIt for two demonstration sessions and see it for yourself!

Railroad Spike Knife (10 am - 12 pm) 

For you 'Forged in Fire' or bladesmithing enthusiasts, this one's for you. Watch a railroad spike be forged into a knife. While the origins of these knifes aren't well known, one can imagine them being fashioned by the countless number of American Hobos who walked the rails during the Great Depression of the 1930’s.  

Replica Vintage Trivet (1 pm - 3 pm) 

Trivets are used to protect the surface of tables from hot serving pots and pans. Watch metal be forged into this useful household item. Today a trivet can be forged from available stock metal, but in the 19th century it was quite common for a trivet to be made out of a horseshoe.
