Have you always wanted to dip your toes in the world of blacksmithing and leatherworking? This short, one-night class is perfect for anyone who wants to try it all out! Starting with fire, everyone will learn basic blacksmithing techniques including: bending, flattening, riveting, welding. We will use pre-punched leather belt blanks and rivet them together to secure the hand-forged belt buckles and make them perfectly sized for your waist.
