Event Overview

An introduction to the art and craft of forging steel.


Chris will be teaching students forging techniques by crafting their own wall hooks, bottle openers, or letter openers. Emphasis will be on learning how to safely manage a propane forge, building hammer technique, and understanding how to efficiently move hot metal. No previous experience required.


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.
