About the Course

This workshop is suitable for all levels from complete beginners through to those that already have some experience of home blacksmithing. Adults only, or over 16 when accompanied by a paying adult.

This workshop will be limited to 10 participants.

Quite possibly the best opportunity for hand forged carving knives…

This is almost a two for the price of one workshop – and a rare chance to catch two of these incredible makers in the same place, at the same time, working on the same thing!

Nic Westermann and Adrian Lloyd, half of team Hewn and Hone, will spend the day teaching you to create two brand new, scary sharp carving knives from raw materials.

You’ll start with raw steel, bits of tree and some bark and be guided skilfully through the process from start to finish, having the opportunity to use and experience Hewn and Hone sharpening products and be taught how to achieve new levels of sharpness you thought never possible.

Over the course of the day long workshop, you’ll be forging, grinding, heat treating, sharpening, carving, weaving and generally having the time of your life.

We plan that all attending this course leave with a minimum of a Slöjd style carving knife and a detail carving knife or Kolrosing knife, carved and fitted handles and woven bark sheaths to protect those uber sharp edges.

All equipment, tools, materials, refreshments and lunch provided.

This is sure to be a popular course, and one that may not be repeated regularly – so do you really want to miss out…?

To be held in our farmhouse workshop in Dundraw, Cumbria.

Time: 09:30 – 17:30
