A two-day sword making experience over either morning or afternoon sessions. Have you always dreamed of making your own sword or perhaps making a family crest sword to display on your mantelpiece? Whether you are fulfilling a bucket list dream to share with your partner/friend or spoiling your children rotten with this two-day experience package, our team of expert blacksmiths will guide and support you in crafting your very own bespoke sword. You can even engrave your family crest or initials to commemorate the special occasion. Children will leave not only having had an amazing two days of making their own sword, they will also have experienced life as a real blacksmith with history, science, maths and metalwork design all thrown in. For those young, aspiring ‘Forged in Fire’ fans this is a great way to have a go at traditional blacksmithing! Children from the age of 7 years are welcome to participate “with parental supervision”. 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.
