  • Warhorse @ The Goat Farm 1200 Foster Street Northwest Atlanta, GA, 30318 United States (map)

In this last of four workshops in Module One: Fundamentals, you’ll learn the techniques you need to create a yoke fork that can be used for cooking or combined with the other elements of Module One to hang cooking utensils or function as a spit for roasting. No prior forge experience necessary.

Please meet your class at The Warhorse Coffee shop at The Goat Farm 15 minutes early. Please wear long sleeves, pants & boots. Bring an obscene amount of water.

ABOUT THE SERIES:
After several years of trying to keep up with our participants’ blacksmithing desires, we’ve finally got the series for you.

This fall and winter, we’re partnering with Goat n Hammer to bring you a four module series teaching you blacksmithing fundamentals as you forge your very own campfire cookset.

The entire series will take place every other Saturday from 10:30-1:30, stretching from October to May, and there’s no commitment to make it to each session – though you’re definitely going to want to.

  • Module One: FUNDAMENTALS – Shepherd’s Crook Fire Poker, S-Hook, Swivel Arm, Yoke Fork
  • Module Two: STRUCTURE – Ring Hook, Flint Striker, Trammel, Tripod
  • Module Three: UTENSILS – Turner, Bottle Opener, 2-Tine Fork, Copper Ladle
  • Module Four: BLADES – Camp Ax + Leather Sheath, Outdoor Knife + Leather Sheath

Throughout the series, you’ll learn the basics of forge safety as well as forging points and fishtails, forming, drawing down, simple set downs, splitting, punching, drifting and more.

About the Instructor: 
Goat n Hammer is a small group of artisans sharing studio space at The Goat Farm, but they quickly become like family. Led by Mark Hopper, this growing group of metalsmiths provides a safe, fun, rigorous environment to expand your knowledge and hone your skill in blacksmithing.

Mark has worked and taught in Europe, Africa and America and continues to do both from his Westside studio. He focuses on the process and function of the craft, the responsibility of the individual, and the lessons of the great craftsmen of the past.
