Forging Basics - Hammering Skills for Metalsmiths
DVD with Tim McCreight, Forging Basics - Hammering Skills for Metalsmiths
Forging is an ancient and fundamental technique that has been some-what marginalized outside its use in blacksmithing. Because jewelers in the West typically start with rolled sheets and drawn wires, they risk missing the great pleasures and design options intrinsic to forging.
In his usual relaxed and empowering approach, Tim McCreight lays out the basic tools, concepts and strategies of forging nonferrous metals. Through a systematic series of exercises, McCreight shows the transformative power of small scale forging.
