About the Course
Join bladesmith Matt Aldridge at his forge in Lincolnshire for a range of two day workshops where you will learn how to make a knife from start to finish.
The sessions include forging a billet of steel to shape, using a belt grinder to remove excess metal, heat treating your knife, and how to fit and finish a solid handle. Each student will go home with one completed knife.
We have a range of dates and subjects booked throughout the year for these courses, as follows:
Sat 26th and Sun 27th May - Make a Seax
Sat 23rd and Sun 24th June - Make Your own Chef Knife

What's included in the price?
Sessions include all materials to make your knife, as well as lunch, tea and coffee through the day (as well as cakes or biscuits if my partner has been baking!) I'll contact you in advance to sort out any special dietary requirements.
There is room for two people on each course - and the fee drops to £250 per person if two people book on and attend at the same time, so why not bring along a friend or family member?
The pattern weld sessions are £250 per person, and you will need to book onto both in order to finish a blade.
