Many of the tools and techniques used at Adam’s Forge are capable of causing injury. Tools can burn, cut and abrade. These are merely examples and not a complete list of dangers. If we are all aware and use safe practices we can minimize those dangers, hence the need for a safety policy. Each smith is responsible for their own safety as well as the safety of others nearby. Participants must have instructor clearance before they use any tool.HYDRATION: If you’re not sweating you’re probably not doing it right. Please bring something non-alcoholic to drink. Water works perfectly!PROTECTIVE CLOTHING (COTTON, WOOL, or LEATHER): Nonflammable material is REQUIRED at all times. Tee shirts and jeans are perfect.FOOTWEAR (LEATHER, COTTON): Nonflammable and with the toes covered to protect the feet from the constant production of hot and sharp metal fragments which rain down on the feet constantly is REQUIRED at all times. A steel toe is optional and provides protection against a dropped hammer or work piece. Boots, with the pants outside the boot top will prevent the hot and sharp metal fragments from getting in and burning your feet.All other tools and gear are provided without extra charge! #adamforge #blacksmith #blacksmithing #craft #diy #forge #hammer #hands on #hands-on #la #metal #metalwork #pick #popular #smithBy completing this booking request, you acknowledge that this is a request that needs to be confirmed by our Partners.
