Prospect Hill ForgeTook a great introduction to blacksmithing class at Prospect Hill Forge in Waltham this weekend.  It was about 10 degrees outside, but I warmed up right away making my first project, an S-hook. Prospect Hill Forge offers classes for all levels, and hosts an open forge on Saturday mornings for those with a bit more experience.

  1. Hey I’m a sculptor and taking a blacksmithing class too, but in Arizona! We’re learning how Damascus Steel. What are you hoping to accomplish after the classes?

    • Damascus steel–very cool! Not sure what I want to do at this point, except I get the occasional commission for an outdoor metal piece and mild steel is very much less costly than bronze. Just looking to increase my skill set right now.
