Slide 2: vases. The kind of practical work will depend on what specific aspect of blacksmithing the course is teaching. The exact nature of the syllabus will vary from course to course and varying degrees of importance will be given to specific aspects of blacksmithing, depending on the focus of the classes. In what detail the various aspects of forging are covered will depend on the duration of the course. What ever the course duration it is important that the classes should contain not just theory but also practical demonstrations and hands on training for the student. Just as the canvas artist needs a feel for the bush and colors he is working with, the blacksmith needs to have a "feel" for the metal he is using and this can only come from hands on experience. It is worth remembering that like all art forms, blacksmithing has many ways of achieving the same goals. What is taught in a class may be a good way, but it need not necessarily be the only way. A student blacksmith should do as much study on his own as possible and understand the various options in metal working that are available to him. Joining online discussion groups and chat forums will allow the student to exchange ideas with others and broaden his horizon. Blacksmithing classes are the best way to learn the art.
