Blacksmithing – forging a set of fire irons
Contact course provider
About the Course
This week long introduction to blacksmithing is a holiday with a difference. With have tuition by artisan blacksmith Andy of Feather Forge, this is a week long course for beginners. We’ll start by learning the basics of moving metal with hammer and anvil, along with managing a traditional coal forge, before progressing to forge your very own set of fire irons to take home.
Every student will have their own forge and anvil to work from, but must be prepared for more hammer puns than they can shake a stick at.
The course takes place at Drumsyniebeg Farm in Argyll, a beautiful spot that's about 1 1/2 hours drive from Glasgow. We can help with transport - picking you up from the train station if necessary. We'll be staying in the farm house and eating a shared meal together every night.
