Using joinery to connect two pieces of metal is a rewarding process for the blacksmith. Whether using conventional or unconventional methods, joinery makes space for conversation and creativity, and can create an object that is much more than the sum of its parts.

In this workshop, which is open to all skill levels, guest instructor Andy Dohner will present a focus on mortise and tenon, riveting, collars, and fire welding as ways to create interesting connections. As a group we will discuss basic toolmaking and how to trouble shoot when different tools apply. There will be a heavy emphasis on forging at proper temperature and developing an eye for a clean line.

In this class students should prepare to work hard together, have FUN, and engage in an inspiring environment! Please bring a water bottle and wear long pants and closed-toe shoes.

Instructor bio: Andrew Dohner is a third generation steel worker from central Pennsylvania. He has 10 years experience as an industrial welder and fabricator and an extensive background as a journeyman blacksmith. The opportunity to work in a number of shops across the country has given him a strong and diverse education and a unique approach to forging steel. He currently operates his shop out of Roseburg, OR where he produces functional and sculptural shapes with a strong focus on a well-crafted object. Andrew has demonstrated at several blacksmithing events and taught classes at various craft schools. His current work has been exhibited at the Madison Morgan Cultural Center in Madison, GA, the National Ornamental Metals Museum in Memphis, TN, and Penland Gallery in Penland, NC.
