I wanted to share an online forge welding webinar On April 7th, 2016, a Thursday evening, at 6 pm Eastern time an ABANA sponsored educational workshop will take place with Mark Aspery and created by Victoria Patti from the BlacksmitHer Radio podcast. It's an interactive webinar with Mark and Victoria. You can asked questions and listen to others as Mark demonstrates different aspects of forge welding.
I participated in the punch and drifting class on my cell phone a few months ago. It was a lot of information on punching and drifting given by an expert. Mark didn't only show how to do the task, he also explained the why the techniques worked. This concept is great. Especially for someone who wants to learn blacksmithing skills and does not have access to a local instructor.
I recommend trying a class to see if it works for you. Plus the webinar is saved so you can review it at a later time at your convenience. Like when you're trying to improve your skill set. It make a great reference.
Here are the links for more information. I'll see you in class.
