Learn to bend and shape steel in The Crucible’s smithy as you practice traditional blacksmithing techniques, such as drawing, bending, twisting, punching, slitting, and drifting using the forge and anvil. Students will learn to forge with confidence and complete projects such as a bracelet, hook, fork, and spoon.
NOTE: This class is being held in its normal location indoors in the Blacksmithing classroom. We have measured and indicated safe, physically-distanced work stations for the 6 students and faculty member(s).
New Health and Safety Guidelines
All students must review and adhere to all of The Crucible's Health and Safety Guidelines to best protect our students and staff during this public health crisis. Classes have been modified to Alameda County’s latest safety recommendations and will continue to adapt as things change. Starting Nov. 1, students age 12+ must present a negative COVID test or proof of vaccination before each class session. If your class is cancelled by The Crucible due to updated county guidance, we are pleased to offer you a refund for a class or session that cannot run.
