Instructor profile

Erik Newquist's first blacksmith shop was in his parents woodshed with a smoky coal forge and a tiny anvil at the age of 16. He has moved his shop from California, to Vermont and finally, back to Washington state where it all started. His shop is currently located on Marrowstone Island on the Olympic Peninsula.He has a deep love for beautiful handmade tools, the tools that are used everyday. He forges the tools that are now replaced by machines, bringing them back because of the pleasure of working with one's hands, such as splitting firewood with an axe, moving earth with the Korean hoe, and shaving wood with a handmade draw knife. In keeping with long blacksmithing traditions, Erik makes his own tongs, hammers, drifts, chisels, forges, and power hammer. His love of the craft was shared to him by blacksmiths the world round, and now he passes on his knowledge to students of every age and skill level. www.etsy.com/shop/NewquistMetalsmith
