Blacksmith Beginning


Adult Enrichment / Spark Your Creativity -
2021 Winter/Spring Adult

Come to Historic Tunnel Mill for the annual beginning blacksmith classes. Basic blacksmith techniques will be taught: heating, drawing out materials, upsetting, bending, and twisting techniques in steel material. Students will start by making fire tending tools and move on to spend time on special projects as desired. 

Dennis Timmerman is our instructor this year. Dennis took his introductory classes at Tunnel Mill, and this is where he got his first experience with forging. Since then he has had the opportunity to develop skills at John C. Campbell Fork School in North Carolina, where he took additional classes in Blacksmithing. Now he spends time practicing on his own equipment in his home in Spring Valley. He is excited to get together at the mill to tend the fire and shape the metal.

Questions contact Carol Adams at 507-289-4189. www.tunnelmillcrafts.com

A $95.00 supply fee will be collected at class to cover all 3 weeks of projects. Dress for safety; please bring ear and eye protection and gloves.
