Forge a Squirrel Cooker / Pot hanger – A campfire accessory with style
October 8 @ 12:00 AM - 4:30 PM
This intermediate blacksmithing class will introduce students to heavier stock than we use in the Viking fork class, but will cover roughly the same skills to create a two piece kit woodfire cooking kit for your camping bedroll. (coffee pot not included)
It may be called a squirrel cooker, but you can use it to cook a portion or two of just about any kind of meat. You can cook hotdogs, and sausage or even marshmallows or stick an ear of corn on it to roast.
You can use the hook on the other end to hang a coffee pot or soup pot over the fire.
Students will be using a propane forge and hammers and anvils to forge tapers, scrolls, rings and twists.
All materials are included. (except the teapot)
Wear closed toed shoes and long pants.
It will be hot around the forge, and we will be taking a lunch break half way through, so feel free to bring a snack and cool beverage, or you are welcome to pop over to local fast food options. Or just bring some marshmallows and dogs... 🙂
