This one day course will introduce you to the next level of Blacksmithing and hand forge work. Completion of our Blacksmithing Beginners course or some previous experience is required.
It aims to advance your skills to the production of a multi part piece such as a candle or tea light holder or hook rack.
Forges are hot and can be noisy- eye & ear protection will be provided and please wear solid boots and clothes suitable for working in (made of natural fibres). Forges can be smoky, if you have any respiratory ailments please bear this in mind.
Participants must be fit and agile enough to stand all day by the forges, wield a hammer multiple times and be outside in the weather at this time of year.
Please let us know if you have any specific requirements or needs. Please email for T&C'S. All courses are for 18 years and above.
If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
