Old School Blacksmithing Workshop

In an effort to expose the members of the Knoxville Makers Guild to some old style making I asked my friend and neighbor John Enloe of Art In The Burrow and the Clinch River Blacksmith Guild to hold an old school blacksmithing workshop for the group. The session was well attend with a crowd of ten very pale geeks exposing themselves to the dangers of the dreaded day-star to have a chance to pound hot metal and create hand-forged wall hooks and railroad-spike knives. I personally discovered that it is quite possible to make steel burn, which is frankly pretty darn awesome.
