Description:

A farrier’s rasp is an interesting metal to work with and will make an excellent knife. The challenge here will be to build the handle and blade out one single rasp. Just when you think you understand forging, we’re going to throw a twist at you.
Another 4-hour session to challenge yourself as a blacksmith while creating a functional tool that’ll be as useful in the garden as it will be in a zombie apocalypse.
** Prerequisite: must have taken at least one other blacksmithing workshop at NewMakeIt or other places

Please note: Workshop participants must be 16 years of age or older. Those under 18 years of age must have parental consent / a signed waiver.

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.
