Have you always dreamed of making your own sword or perhaps making a family crest sword to display on your mantelpiece? Morning and afternoon session are available. Our sword making package has gone international and we welcome visitors from ALL over the world. We offer a number of ways for you to come and visit the forge to design and craft your very own sword. Our swords may not be made from Valyrian steel as featured on Games of Thrones. However your journey in crafting one will be remembered for years! Our decorative sword activity is a perfect package for a group. This package also surpasses all the traditional stag and hen party activities as, under the expert guidance of our experienced blacksmiths, you will work together in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere to create an everlasting memento for the groom or bride. Share laughter and fun together as you forge the sword out of steel – and then impress your guests when it comes to cutting the wedding cake! Suitable for any occasion (stag/hen/birthday/teambuilding/family day out). This is much more than your normal experience day! You can see, touch, smell and experience the life of a blacksmith, taking home whatever you make with us. Be sure to dress appropriately, remembering that in the colder months it can get chilly inside the workshop (despite the fires!) We will be here to meet you on arrival where we will get all of the boring (but essential) bits out of the way. Please bring the completed Health and Safety forms with you, it’s vital they are completed prior to your visit so that you are ready to start your day as soon as you arrive. If you prefer you can always email them to us prior to arrival. Excited? Lose yourself in an experience unlike any other … and we’re sure you will want to come back for more.
