Calling all fans of Forged in Fire, come down to the forge and make your own axe. We will cover every aspect from basic forging techniques and hammer control, then grinding and profiling followed by heat treatment and fitting the handle. We start off by drawing and planning your axe, then move on to the magic of drawing out your design from an innocuous piece of metal. Once you’re happy with the axe shape and design we start to construct the handle and any other decorative touches you want added. By the end of the course you will take home a beautiful and functional piece of art. If you’re daring enough we also offer a Forged in Fire testing session, and video for an additional fee. This is a 2 day course costing £300.
