    This class had six students, seen above.  Their goals were to learn how to forge-weld successfully and consistently.  After two days, all knew what had to be done in basic forge-welding situations, and were beginning to branch out to new and challenging work.  They accomplished making chain tongs using a drop-the-tongs weld, chain links, rings, t-welds, faggot welds and other interesting connections.  Basket weave and pineapple twist handles seemed to be favorites.
