@jenniferdepollo taught a fantastic workshop this past week! Some fantastic student work! #blacksmith #botanicals #forged #handskillsHere’s one of our favorite regulars Manuel starting the day forging flowers in @jenniferdepollo’s fantastic workshop this week. #forgingflowers #botanical #educationImpressive knives from a great class! Integral Chef with Nick Rossi. #integralchef #forged #buildituseitSome stills from Lee’s class. #leesauder #ironsmelting #somethingfromnothingSo not only did we make 4 blooms of iron, Lee guided us through remelting all the bits that fell off the blooms in forging and carburizing it in this smaller furnace. We were able to make some beautiful high carbon material! #homemadesteel #makesometoolsLee Sauder is amazing asset to our community and it was a pleasure to have him back for another smelting workshop. This is the climax, when a big beautiful bloom of Iron gets brought into the world! #bloomerysmelting #oretoiron #nothingtosomethingRED hammer faces, means one thing, it’s Smelting Week at NESM.  Busting up ore and making clay, the foundations of a successful smelt.
