Get blacksmithing on 2 Saturday, Nov. 3 for the Burnaby Village Museum's Blacksmithing 5 - Tong Making class, running from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The cost is $75, but you'll learn a unique skill. Blacksmiths are unlike other artisans, as they make their own tools. Students in this class will make two pairs of light blacksmithing tongs: a pair of flat bit tongs made from 3/8 square stock and a second pair from flat bar stock using a twist technique. Both pairs of tongs are suitable for light blacksmithing. Students with no forging experience must take Blacksmithing 1.
