Basic Blacksmithing - Twisted Cuffs with Matt Pohorelsky

Saturday, July 29, 9a-1p


Make simple, solid and sophisticated hand formed cuff bracelets in steel. This Creative Side Metal Works course will allow you to make as many cuffs as time permits, using ¼” steel round stock. Learn to use an oxygen and acetylene Cobra welding torch to heat the metal in a vise and create delicate twists in the steel. Once twisted with your own unique pattern you will learn to form and finish out your bracelet.  Beginners welcome. ***This class is open to ages 16 and up.


  • Important Dress Code for Your Safety:

    When attending Metal Works classes, you must ALWAYS wear all cotton clothing. Polyester and poly-blend materials (plastic) are unsafe to wear. 

    Shirt tails need to be tucked in.

    Long pants are a necessity. If you show up in shorts, you will not be allowed to complete the course.

    Do not wear torn or frayed clothing. Also, be aware that you'll likely end up with small burn holes in your clothing from this class so dress appropriately.

    Do not wear jewelry of any kind.

    Always wear LEATHER footwear that protects from sparks, falling objects, and embers (canvas, etc will easily ignite and burn). High top work boots are best.
