Blacksmithing and Bush craft



Come and join me in my forge on our family smallholding set amongst the ancient woodland of Thundersley great common.

This will be a 4 hour one on one session.

You will choose a design and forge your own steel flint striker, you will then make your own char cloth tinder before heading over to our private woodland to learn how to use your striker, build and light your own campfire.

I also have a woodland forge with a manual bellows which weather permitting can be used to hold the entire session in the woodland, although this is a more time consuming method owing to the amount of time it takes to heat the steel to working temperature with manual bellows.

Refunds are not available on this booking. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

Fuel, Tools, materials, refreshments.
