Hooks & Hangers for Campus: Service Learning in the Blacksmithing Shop

A place for everything and everything in its place…we’re always trying to put this idea into practice around the North House campus. As our classroom resources grow, so does our need for the right places to store them. Help create more places for things in this service learning blacksmithing course, focused on hangers & hooks for the North House classrooms. You’ll learn or practice your fundamental blacksmithing skills on a variety of small projects that will be mounted and used all over the North House campus. As time allows, more decorative elements will be explored. We’ve got a growing list of needs; come put your skills to use and leave our campus a more organized learning environment for all. Your registration fee includes a daily lunch.
