Join us for a full day course learning the craft of blacksmithing, starting with a look at the common tools used by smiths and the techinques of the trade, and through the safe working use of a Forge to manipulate material.
You'll be taught how to bend metal and create unique shapes with the fire, and discover how the flames can be your friend. By the end of the day you will have produced a variety of ironwork ranging from keyrings, viking style knives, fire pokers and bottle openers, all by your owns hand and ready to take home!
The day can be quite hot and sweaty by the fire so we recommend you wear suitable clothing such as thin layers you don't mind getting dirty and sturdy boots. You will also need to bring a water bottle and hearty lunch, tea and coffee are provided. Aprons and other protective equipment provided.
Please read our COVID-19 notice on our website, as well as all our current measures in place such as social distancing in our large forge. You are welcome to bring a mask if you wish.
We look forward to having you!
