Learn how to forge like a viking!

In this second silver forging class, you'll expand the skills learned in beginner Silver Forging needed for forging fine silver from raw material to finished product. Pour a simple silver ingot in a shaped mould, practice basic forging techniques, expanded skills such as tapering, and use these skills in the creation of a wide band "Gotland Ring", a great symbol of status among 10th century Norse traders. By the end of class, you will have a basic understanding of historic silver forging techniques and will have crafted your own Gotland Ring!

Youth ages 13-17 may enroll in this course if a parent/guardian is also enrolled as chaperone. Parent/guardians should email WCC at if they plan to enroll their child in the course.
