"Metalsmith Essentials: Foundational Processes & Toolmaking"
October 3-7, 2021
 

As modern day metalsmiths, we have access to almost unlimited tools and materials. Because of this we fail to appreciate the fundamental processes that were used in the past, and those still used in less developed areas of the world today. This workshop will put you in touch with the fundamentals of metal work and tool making. Enjoy the beauty of Lake Superior, healthy, locally sourced meals, inspired lodging, and retreat amenities, all in peaceful surroundings in the woods and on the water. Lodging packages available.
