About the Course
Courses will be running at Bickleigh Farm throughout 2018, starting in February 2018.
Please see website via the link button above for available dates.
The one- and two-day courses are run in my professional forge, which is extensively equipped for modern day use.
The two-day blacksmithing course starts in a similar way to the one-day version, with some basic technical instruction, but is intended to be more 'in-depth' as design and techniques are able to be further explored.
There will be opportunities to look more widely at the potential for interpreting the plasticity of hot metal; with more time available for experimentation and improvisation.
Each person will have the use of a space, an anvil, either a forge fire or a gas furnace to heat the metal, suitable hammers and tongs, as well as the facility of 2 power hammers for heavier forging. The workshop is extensively equipped for modern day working.
Internationally known blacksmith, Richard Bent, now offers this unique opportunity to unravel some of the mystery of blacksmithing; working under his instruction in his forge near Halwell, in the beautiful South Devon landscape.

What's included in the price?
All tools are provided as is the material appertaining to the tuition, extra material for projects may be purchased separately. Tuition will be given on a one to one basis, within a group of six people maximum, so there will be no pressure on having to 'keep up'.

The course will have a diversity and quality of instruction second to none. I have been National Champion Blacksmith of the Year three times, being also a holder of a Silver Medal awarded by the Worshipful Company of Blacksmiths of London.

Fantastic few days, encouraged by an extremely skilled yet humble man.
Thanks Richard for an experience not to be missed. I am very pleased with the pentagram you showed techniques to enable me to complete.
All the best
