Discover pattern development history and practice from beginning through advanced. In this workshop, we will use commonly used contemporary raw materials and the re-purposing of materials for billets. Expect to produce a pattern welded blade and material for future projects. Those interested in patterned steel for objects other than blades (i.e. jewelry, hardware etc.) are welcome too. There will be fire and there will be fun. Prior forging experience is required.
