This three day intensive class will focus on the creation of tools and techniques used in making animals out of steel. The first two days will be used in the making of tools, such as eye punches, and other chisels used to make expressive facial features and forms. The third day will be dedicated to applying the tools in creating and animal of their choosing and to their ability. Students will walk away with a set of tools they have made to complete an animal head. Prepare for a fast paced and fun time in the fire! Students need to have taken a prior blacksmithing class and have the ability to manage a coal fire to get the most out of this class.
Steven Kalb has been blacksmithing for over 15 years and teaching at the Jax since 2009. He has studied blacksmithing under some of the best American blacksmiths, and taken classes at nationally recognized schools. Sharing the craft is important to Steven. He has completed terms as Program Chairman, Regional Coordinator, and Trustee for the Florida Artist Blacksmith Association. He also does demonstrations at his coal forge periodically at Koreshan State Park in Estero, Florida. Steven�s interest in blacksmithing began with traditional forging. Period cooking gear and traditional joinery were his passion for several years. Then his art took a more organic direction, where he continues to explore it to this day. www.kalbironworks.com
