About this Event

Learn the fundamentals of tool-making at this intensive weekend course.

Informed by discussions on design, technique and practical procedures, you will work through a series of projects. You will also learn about forges, how to navigate an anvil and all the wonderful tools that fit into the blacksmith’s repertoire.

This is an essential class to undertake before moving on to other workshops such as Intro II: Contemporary blacksmithing, toolmaking, basic knife making, and other specialised design-build courses.

The course takes place at the picturesque waterfront slip yards of Battery Point in Hobart, Tasmania. Each class allows only four students per session. This ensures quality in teaching and safe working practice.

Classes will be held in the front shed at Mattila Studio over the weekend of 7th & 8th November 2020, from 9 am to 5.00 pm each day.

Responsibility to teach and share with others in my community and abroad is a part of my arts and trade practice. This fits in with the ethos of self-empowerment through skills. Mattila Studio is a safe space where creativity thrives and ideas are realized.

PLEASE NOTE

Students are to provide their PPE (safety gear) including:

  • Eye protection
  • Ear protection
  • Work boots – steel-toe-capped
  • Leather gloves
  • Cotton clothes – nothing synthetic

Students must be in a fit working condition. If you have any health-related issues that could inhibit your ability to work, please discuss with Pete before proceeding with the order.
