Instructor: Haley Woodward


I have been blacksmithing professionally since 2001. I have a MFA degree in Metal Arts from Southern Illinois University, Carbondale.   I am currently an adjunct professor in metal Arts at Austin Community College, Austin TX.  I teach a variety of blacksmithing courses ranging from introductory skills to sculpture. I also maintain my own full-time studio in Austin where my work ranges from sculptural forged fine art pieces to architectural ironwork.

I have been invited to exhibit and teach or demonstrate throughout the United States by a variety of craft schools and organizations, including the Penland School of Craft, Penland NC, Guilford College, Geensboro NC, Forging on the River in Memphis TN, Center for Metal Arts, Florida NY, the Artist Blacksmithing Association of North America, and the California Blacksmiths Association.
