"Blacksmithing Through History" Summer Camp

Jeff is very excited to be co-leading a "Blacksmithing Through History" camp this summer at St. Albans School from June 20-24 for 8th through 12th graders.  We love working with St. Albans!

Here's the course description: "This one-week course, open to students grades 8-12, offers a unique opportunity to experience a cross-discipline approach to the history of blacksmithing. Students will learn the role metallurgy, in general, and blacksmithing, in particular, had in shaping human civilization and culture. In addition to classroom topics that include mythology, the arts, and technological advancements from western Europe to western Africa, students will spend half of their time at a forge creating their own pieces. Under the guidance of professional blacksmith Jeff Dunkelberger, students will forge three pieces and learn the basic skills of blacksmithing."
