Event Overview

Make your own axe with the art and craft of forging steel.


In this class, you’ll make your own axe out of a repurposed hammer head. Students will forge, heat treat, sharpen, and handle their own complete, functional camp axe. Previous forging experience required (an introductory-level class or equivalent experience).


This class is taught by Chris Lucibella, a blacksmith and metal artist in Denver, CO. Chris has been working with metal for about four years, and during that time worked in metal shops in Tennessee, North Carolina, and Colorado as well as learning at the National Ornamental Metal Museum, the John C. Campbell Folk School, and Peters Valley School of Craft. Chris's main focus in metalwork is on sculpture, home goods, and architectural ironwork.
