Blacksmithing & metal courses

Great Britain has a very long history of blacksmithing and making useful or beautiful items from metal. Our museums display iron and bronze age jewellery, simple coins, swords, knives, armour and an abundance of farming and industrial implements. The craft of forging metal to make sturdy long-lasting implements has a rich history in these islands with so many natural resources. Metal can be heavy and strong for the resilient barricades or hefty locks and bolts of castles and prisons or feathery light and dainty for elegant jewellery and fine adornment. Metal is a material of infinite variety and you will find a metal craft course to suit your interests and skills here with our enthusiastic and skilled metal working tutors
