Rodger LaBrash will demonstrate how to make a sunflower from sheet metal and plate, using several cutting processes, then forging under a power hammer and by hand. We will also show how to inflate steel using heat and compressed air. Then using a torch we will show how to shape the petals to bring life to the flower. Following the demo, class participants will be able to forge their own flower.
