About the Course
Come along to our Blacksmithing experience day set in the beautiful village of Burton Agnes, experience what it is like to be a master crafts man and get to fire up a coke forge for the day and use all the traditional tools and skills still used today.
Based in the yorkshire wolds we offer one day course to all levels of budding enthusiasts from the ages of 16+ (accompanied by adult), you will be welcomed in and shown around the old forge and a short insite on the basics of what the village blacksmith did and still does today.
We will focus on forging small items such as a snail and a key ring of description, this will be light forging so that people can get an easy feel for the craft and won't be too challenging.
Once all have arrived we will then begin our class it will start by a few safety points, exits and PPE, we will then go onto the demos by one of our smiths.
We run our classes on a 6 pupil per session

Spent a day forging a simple yet lovely little blade here, which just has a wonderful ancient feel to it.
Everyone was friendly and Jake David who was running the course gave calm and supportive help throughout the blade making process.
Burton Agnes is a lovely location for anyone to venture out to and it was an amazing experience seeing a family run working forge in the villlage.
I would highly recommend the day to anyone wishing to try black smithing and blade making for the first time.
