Meet the Instructor

Kevin Alcock - Blacksmith

While working a career as a farrier for over 35 years, Kevin has turned the skills learned from making horseshoes into an artistic talent. Spending time in his home forge, Kevin has learned to create pieces like hand held tools, small architectural accents, flowers and animal sculptures using forging and various metal working techniques

After having been a teacher of his trade as a farrier and as a 4H leader running a blacksmithing club, Kevin will undoubtedly have a fun and interesting classroom, that will develop skills to take with you throughout your journey as a blacksmith.
