Explore more fire-welding and the forging of larger blades. Take this course after completing Introduction to Knife-Making with Pete Mattila

About this event

Learn more about knife-making with Pete Mattila.

In this intensive weekend course students explore more fire-welding and the forging of larger blades. Delivering the same high energy as the first ‘blacksmiths blades’ course, this one begins to teach more controlled hand-forging procedures and heat-treatment processes. Students will forge 2 blades, one being a tomahawk and the other a 8”–10” knife. Handled and sharp!

Classes will be held in the front shed at Mattila Studio over the weekend of 5th & 6th Feb 2022, from 1.30 pm to 9 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

Please also bring a water bottle with you.

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.
