About the Course

This course is aimed at beginners to give you an introduction into the world of blacksmithing.

During your time with us, you will be manufacturing your very own small-scale decorative item to take home with you at the end of the day.

You will be given a range of seasonal objects to choose from but we welcome you to bring along your own ideas, however, adaptations may have to be made to ensure they are achievable in the timescale.

Whilst manufacturing your piece you will learn how to:
- control a solid fuel forge
- perform the traditional techniques that have remained unchanged for centuries:
- forging: drawing out, upsetting
- forming: bending, twisting
- cutting: chiselling, punching
- joining: fire welding, rivetin
