Join the Frist Art Museum and The Forge Nashville for an exploration of metalworking inspired by Knights in Armor. The day will begin with a tour of the exhibition at the Frist Art Museum. Then, we will meet at The Forge Nashville to learn more about metalworking during an interactive demonstration led by makers Duncan Stephenson and JB Williford. After an overview of the history of metalworking and metalworking processes and a demonstration of forging a spear, participants can try their hands at hammering some red-hot metal.
Participants should wear long sleeves and pants, natural-fiber clothing, and closed-toed shoes (preferably boots, no sneakers). No polyester or workout gear.
