About the Course

Due to the popularity of our Blacksmith Experience Days , Viking Knife Classes and Dragon Making classes we have decided to add a special experience day for all the juniors who want to have a go at metalwork. The class is tailored towards 8years + who come with either Dad or Mum. The options are fairly open and are discussed before attending the class and are designed with the child in mind and their aspirations.

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

What's included in the price?

All equipment is provided , however access to power tools is limited to adults for obvious safety reasons. We have a full selection of hand tools and of course they will be using the hearth for forge-work as well.

Everyone must wear sturdy footwear but we will supply safety goggles, gloves aprons etc . some items are may only be available in adult sizes . We have a selection of smaller hammers and aprons are adjustable to suit most sizes. Of course whatever is made on the day is theirs to take away, the cost is for one parent and one child ( 140.00 per person)

Tea, Coffee and soft drinks are provided as well as biscuits but we don't go to the pub unlike the other courses so please bring a packed lunch (we have a microwave if needed). Class sizes are reduced to maximise supervision and ensure an enjoyable experience.
