Day classes in traditional blacksmithing ... make an item to take away



At my forge in the hills of the Pennines
Learn traditional blacksmithing skills for the day.

Using a coke fired forge, hammer and anvil you will make an item to take away at the end of the day.

Classes are tailored to the individual (or groups of up to 3.) Various items can be made; a hand forged knife, forged spoon, fire poker, toasting fork, or an ornamental pendant (other items can be made by prior arrangement).

After a basic health and safety talk, I will demonstrate the techniques of making an item, step by step, then let you make the item tutoring you through the process to create a finished piece.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
