Learn the fundamentals of hot forging steel. In this introductory course students will discover how steel becomes plastic with the application of heat and how the form of steel bar can be changed using heat and hammer. By the end of this course each student will know how to produce simple forged items commonly found in the house or garden. The farrier shop, at KPU Tech, has individual forging stations with adjustable anvil stands to suit any student. The majority of course time will be spent working in the shop at the forge.
