EVENT DESCRIPTION:


This webinar will try to cover all the bases for successfully forging C- and S- scrolls to measure.  This is a key skill for decorative ironwork of all kinds, including the CBA Level II grille!  

Topics covered include pattern transfer, determining starting lengths, producing consistent scrolls, and adjusting scrolls to fit.  We’ll also have a look at scrolling jigs (or forms), covering both some tricks to forging a good one, and how to use one properly and efficiently.

You’ll get more out of the class if you’ve practiced hand-turning decent scrolls of various kinds and have forged one or two scrolling wrenches and a pair of scrolling tongs.

Participants will be emailed handouts and a list of suggested tools.
