The two-day blacksmithing course starts in a similar way to the one-day version, 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.
This course usually runs on Fridays and Saturdays.
As a self-taught blacksmith, Richard Bent fully understands the difficulty faced by people wishing to learn this ancient craft.
To experience first hand the day-to-day working in a 21st Century blacksmith's forge facility, one-day and two-day courses of instruction are given on an individual basis, within a group setting with a maximum of six people.
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 Modbury, in the beautiful South Devon landscape.
