About the Course

Decorative Blacksmithing at Acton Scott Historic Working Farm.

This two-day course will cover a series of basic blacksmithing techniques. It is suitable for beginners and those with some knowledge of the subject. Day one will cover the most fundamental aspects of forging, and day two will explore further and include some decorative elements.

Participants will have the opportunity to learn a range of forging techniques and make a decorative piece of ironwork to take home. With only two participants per course, you will receive plenty of individual attention from the tutor.

Tutor: Frazer Picot

Frazer has been a blacksmith for over 15 years and completed his training with Paul Allen, one of the best blacksmiths in the country. He works on commissions and restoration projects, including work for Hampton Court Palace and the Bodleian Library in Oxford.

Please wear suitable clothing and footwear for your course and bring a waterproof jacket.
