The dastardly dragon has been a focal point of many craftsmen for centuries. Your part in taking this course will be learning the processes and sequence in forging dragon heads. We will start the course with some fundamental forging of the tools needed, we will work with 4140 tool steel. A basic collection of these tools can serve to produce any number of dragon or animal head. From there you will learn the various steps in forging the shapes in sequence to produce dragon heads of many sizes and expressions. It will be your decision in how to use them, my suggestions are for fun gifts, fireplace tools, candle sticks, door knockers, bottle openers, etc.
Students should expect to leave with a handful of functional tools and several inspiring dragons, if we could just get them to breathe fire ?
