Blacksmithing for Beginners - Full Day Forging for Two



Ever wanted to try your hand at the ancient art of blacksmithing? You and a friend can spend a day getting in-depth, personalised tuition from Chris, a qualified Blacksmith, in his Worcestershire workshop.

Go at it hammer and tongs, learn how to manipulate hot steel and produce your own metal masterpiece. Choose from a range of small projects to make and take away with you.

This full day course is not part of a larger group session, it'll just be the two of you and Chris in his workshop, this way you get to spend as much time forging as you want!

Ages 14 and up, please note that courses are not suitable for under 18’s unless accompanied by a paying adult.

Some elements of the course may be subject to change on the day.

Chris is an excellent teacher - really informative, helpful and patient. My husband and I had a really memorable day in October learning about blacksmithing. It was certainly a day to remember. Chris leads you through the various stages and techniques of blacksmithing and you take the results of your labour (a keyring each) home with you.

Everything felt very safe and Covid-secure, with visors, hand gel, painted lines on the floor, etc.
