Grove City Blacksmith Classes
Did you know that you can study the ancient craft of the blacksmith in Grove City?
Learn the timeless art and skill working a forge, turning lumps of metal into beautiful and useful items using fire, hammer and anvil at the Augenstein-Spillman Blacksmith Shop in Century Village, 3899 Orders Road.
In Blacksmithing 101, participants are schooled in the five fundamentals of the trade, building confidence and hammer control while forging basic hooks, twisting and texturizing metal, and making nail headings. Those new to the craft must take the basic course before moving on to other courses. The more advanced Blacksmithing 202 builds upon basic skills, moving on to build a fireplace set and other items. Blacksmithing 415 is a special class designed for teens and parents. Participants provide their own safety equipment.
