Blacksmithing Minor

The Blacksmithing minor is intended for students who wish to hone their critical thinking and creative problem solving by using a variety of blacksmithing skills including handwork, machining and digital fabrication to refine their ability to produce artwork, commissions and utilitarian tools.
