About the Course

This one to one course includes all tools and materials, with expert guidance so that you can make your own completed, hilted and polished bronze leaf shaped sword.

No experience is necessary just the willingness to work hard for a couple of days to produce an artifact from a past age.

Accommodation can be found in Ripon at The Ship Inn, Bondgate, The Royal Oak, Market Place or the Spa Hotel by the Spa Gardens or just outside Ripon at Bay Tree Farm, Aldfield. Or just google accommodation in Ripon, North Yorkshire.

A £100 non-refundable deposit is required at the time of booking. No monies will be refunded if cancellation is made within 3 days of the workshop or on the day as I cannot fill the course at such short notice. However, I will be willing to rebook the course if I have other dates available depending upon the time of year.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?
