About the Course

Have you ever wanted a sword to hang on your wall or a sconce lamp or maybe a brazier for the long winter that is coming? Well we are going to run a special metalwork / blacksmith class for anyone who loves 'Game of Thrones' or medieval genre like Lord of the Rings, Vikings etc.
Items will all have a medieval 'feel' and not designed to be exact replicas but lookalike and made by attendees of the classes.

These classes will be run for a limited time only and class sizes are small to allow everyone access to tutors and equipment.
We start at 9.30am and finish between 4.30pm- 5pm. A pub lunch is included.

Please note : the swords, axes, spears etc. are designed to be wall art .

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

What's included in the price?

Materials are included, however some items that are larger may carry a small surcharge to cover these items. We also encourage upcycling so if you have something that can be incorporated in your project just bring it along.
For all our courses a pub lunch is included.
We supply aprons, goggles, gloves and specialist PPE (personal protective equipment) but please wear sturdy footwear and no flammable clothing, old clothes - cotton or wool are the best.
Coffee, tea and biscuits are available during the day .

We aim to have our own fire breathing dragon in attendance, of course if that's too scary you can have your picture taken in our own iron throne!

For any special items please just ask , we may be able to help !

Want to review this course?

Spent two days at the Forge with John and his great team. They were all friendly and very accommodating. John and team were very enthusiastic and knowledgeable and helped me with the design and explained the processes before letting me loose.
I had a thoroughly great time and made a fantastic Viking inspired broad sword, couldn't recommend this course enough. They run plenty of courses which all look fantastic too!
