Description

A chance to develop your blacksmithing skills and make a tool! A 4-hour session that walks you through making your own hammer, the tools needed and the techniques to achieve the finished tool! We will start by working a raw billet into the shape of the hammer using a power hammer. We will then punch the eye and drift it to size, from here we can determine what kind of hammer you would like to make. Using fullers and striking tools we will create a one of a kind hammer for you to take home.

Hi there, I’m Sandy a 28-year-old blacksmith. I create functional metal items at my forge in Newbridge, Scotland. I began this journey to learn blacksmithing in 2019 after working in a corporate environment and seeking something more fulfilling. I love the challenges of working with metal and the things you can create. I have offered these courses in the past year to share my enjoyment of blacksmithing with others. I look forward to having you in the forge soon!
