About the Course
A one day introduction to basic or advanced blacksmithing techniques depending upon your skill level. Whether a complete beginner or having had some previous experience the day is tailored to your requirements in achieving at least one finished article by the end of the day, but more usually two or three. Popular past projects have included: draw knife, keyring, fire poker, hanging plant bracket and, of course, hooks.

What's included in the price?
Materials, tools, apron and safety glasses and endless streams of tea, coffee and water are included, but you will need to supply your own safety footwear and all natural fibre clothing, I recommend an old pair of jeans and a long sleeved cotton shirt. Please do not expect to forge in man made fibres, they will melt if they come into contact with anything hot and cause serious burns. I will also take photos and some video of your day which will be posted to a private cloud server for a month for you to download.
Course dates are flexible; please get in touch for the next available date.
