In this blacksmithing class you will learn how to design and construct a sheetiron folk-art weathervane including the forged skeletal structure, directionals, and mounting details often associated with these items. Cold chisel cutting, riveting, and light forging techniques will be taught and patterns based on original weathervanes will be available. In keeping with the folk art tradition, students are encouraged to develop their own ideas and imagery as well.
