• Member Meeting (MEMBERS ONLY)

    The NEW HammerSpace Community Workshop

    ATTENTION! THIS EVENT IS FOR MEMBERS OF HAMMERSPACE ONLY.
    Well, we made it folks. All of our staff and instructors have been vaccinated by now and so we will be resuming classes and other group activities (at slightly reduced maximum attendees) beginning in June.

    Our regular weekly open house will not be resuming. Instead we will be hosting a MEMBERS ONLY social event on the first Thursday of each month going forward. Come in and catch up with other members of the space, and check out the new improvements! As is traditional, feel free to bring a snack or extra beverages to share with new friends and old friends alike.

    All spaces will be re-opened on this date, but mask use will still be required for an unknown duration. Eating and drinking should still be done on the patio.

    Tours will now be provided EVERY DAY on a call ahead basis, so there is no need to wait for an open house.

  • Blacksmithing - Medieval Basket Torch

    The NEW HammerSpace Community Workshop

    $195.00

    This is a two day blacksmithing class, beginning at noon. Each session will be about 3 hours, depending on how much progress is made.

    In this class we will be doing some basic ornamental blacksmithing to produce a portable medieval basket torch. We will be learning to make repeatable parts using the forge, anvils, tongs, hammers and various bending and shaping tools. We will be cheating a tiny bit and employing the MIG welder in the place of traditional hot rivets, and the angle grinders in the place of a foot powered grind stone. We will also be making a steel scrollwork sconce to hold your torch on a wall or post. You may also simply make your torch taller for use as a garden torch.

    This real steel torch COULD be used with a source of fire, but this class includes a rechargable, battery operated simulated flame... with remote control. Like a wizard.

    This is a BLACKSMITHING class, so wear closed toe shoes, and expect to work in a hot environment. Our masking rules are still in effect, so please wear a mask that you will be able to work in. We have broken this class into two days in order to make it less demanding and hot, but we are not in any hurry, and we can always take breaks as necessary.

    Bring some water.

    The paper rockets are easy to make and nearly free if you use junk mail! Launch them many times, as a safe and cheap replacement for fireworks.
