As a traditional blacksmithing technique, forging has been used to create everything from balcony railings to horseshoes. Students developed skills in manipulating nonferrous metals and through the hands-on forging process, learned about crystalline structures, discovered properties of hardening and annealing, and explored the ductility of metals to create pieces of jewelry or tableware.
