Workshop: Forged Objects - Fire Poker

  • Warhorse @ The Goat Farm 1200 Foster Street NW Atlanta, GA 30318 United States (map)

Join our friends from Goat n Hammer to try your hand behind the anvil and create a simple, elegant fire poker for winter. This multi-purpose hook can also be used out camping to hang lanterns and more.

This workshop is perfect for those who want to give blacksmithing a go, regardless of whether you've had experience before. Get ready for a sweaty, challenging good time.

Please meet your class at The Warhorse Coffee shop at The Goat Farm 15 minutes early. Please wear long sleeves, pants & boots. Bring an obscene amount of water.

About the Instructor: 
Goat n Hammer is a small group of artisans sharing studio space at The Goat Farm, but they quickly become like family. Led by Mark Hopper, this growing group of metalsmiths provides a safe, fun, rigorous environment to expand your knowledge and hone your skill in blacksmithing.

Mark has worked and taught in Europe, Africa and America and continues to do both from his Westside studio. He focuses on the process and function of the craft, the responsibility of the individual, and the lessons of the great craftsmen of the past.
