Tool Making Workshop

If you work with metals – learning to make or alter your own tools will open doors you never knew were there! And there simply isn’t anyone better to learn from than Megan! We will explore tool design and learn to make of a variety of ferrous and non-ferrous tools; including shaping, hardening, and finishing high carbon steel. You will come away from this workshop with new tools – and the skills you need to make the right tool when you need it!
