Blacksmithing Experience



An intro to blacksmithing and what it takes to turn raw steel into a working tool/ decorative piece. A 4-hour session that covers the basics while leaving with pieces forged by you.

We will cover the main techniques used in blacksmithing; Upsetting, Drawing, Tapering, Bending, and Punching. With these skills, we will make a bottle opener; a great practice piece, and a great practical take home. For our main piece, we will forge either a fire poker or an item of your choice within reason.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

Coaching, PPE, Materials, Tools, Snacks, Parking, Beer at end of the session to test your bottle opener!
