Have you ever thought about making your own jewellery? Perhaps for yourself, or as a gift for a friend or loved one?
This one-day course will take you step-by-step through the process of forging your own viking style jewellery in our quaint little forge in Benfleet, Essex.
You will have a choice of which items you want to make, and you can make as many items as time will allow during the day (for most students this is two or three pieces). The materials are free and unlimited for the day.
Examples include pendants, bracelets and bangles, broaches, and hairpins, or rings.
The Kerr Forge Blacksmith, Jon, will be alongside to help and advise at every step to ensure you take items you are proud to wear for a lifetime.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
All the tools and materials required to make your jewellery will be provided. At the end of the course, you will take home the items you forged.
Soft drinks, tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided.
For an additional charge, you can also choose to have lunch in the garden, where you can create-your-own pizza with a wide range of toppings, to be cooked in our wood-fired oven and enjoyed with a glass of wine or beer.
6 hours (flexible times to suit)

We spent a fantastic day with Jon today making two pendants, a bangle, a hair pin and a ring.
Jon is very knowledgeable, a great teacher, very patient and makes learning easy and fun.
We would love to return again one day to learn more - in the meantime we have the wonderful pieces we made today to enjoy wearing and showing off to everyone we know!
