About the Course

Courses will be running at Bickleigh Farm throughout 2018. Please see my website via the link button above for available dates.

The educational blacksmithing courses at Red Anvil School of Blacksmithing, situated near Halwell in South Devon, are free ranging in order to provide opportunities to learn the traditional skills and techniques of the craft, as well as encouraging individual contemporary projects using skills I have developed in my day to day working life.

The metal will be heated either by coal fire or by gas furnace, hammered by hand and hammer on the anvil, to forge a variety of small pieces to fulfil the experience of being a blacksmith for a day.

You will be given tuition throughout the day, on a one to one basis, within a group of six people maximum, this gives everyone the benefit of working at their own speed, there is no pressure on having to 'keep up' with the group.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

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.

Want to review this course?

Having spent my entire working life in the metal working industry I was not sure whether this would give me that much pleasure. How incredibly wrong was I. It was beyond good, it was fantastic. I enjoyed every minute in the company of probably the best Blacksmith in the UK. Very informative whilst allowing most of the time at the forge for a hands on metal crafting experience. highly serious on safety but making it a great fun day for me and the other three on the course. We all made something to take home which will be a lasting reminder of a all round great day.
