Maker's bio

Adrian Wood artist blacksmith is a university graduate with a degree in fine art sculpture from The University of London. A chance visit to a blacksmith's forge gave Adrian Wood his first taste of blacksmithing. He recalls; ”From the first moment I hit the hot steel I knew what I wanted to do.” The Forge workshop is situated in the rural outskirts of Yarm, between Darlington and Northallerton so is easily accessible from the A1 or A19. Adrian is a mentor on the BBC 1 show Make It At Market.

Daniel Page reviewed: Blacksmithing Beginners day courses in Yorkshire and the North East

"Very enjoyable course in which we were well supervised. Lovely food for lunch and plenty of opportunity for hot drinks on a very cold day!"

Stuart Littledyke reviewed: Blacksmithing 'Design & Make' weekend course

"Did the design and make course the weekend of 11th and 12th November. Only been on 1 day courses (2 in total) before and felt a little out of my depth to start with, but with a little help from Adrian and Andy soon got back into it. These two guys are amazing, so knowledgeable and helpful. Really put you at ease and make you feel like one of a group. Adrian’s wife Debbie provided meals etc throughout the course and once again her food was to die for. The others on the course were all really nice and some amazing work was done on the 2 days. The main conversations seemed to revolve around boys and their toys, from Lego to cars. Really nice bunch of guys and fun to be around. Well done everyone and a massive THANK YOU to Adrian, Andy and Debbie, I certainly wouldn’t go anywhere else. 👍🏼👍🏼 "

Andrew Wright reviewed: Blacksmithing Beginners day courses in Yorkshire and the North East

"Fabulous day Blacksmithing . Adrian and Andy were excellent teachers in a relaxed and friendly environment. Real sense of achievement to take home 2 useful metal objects. The whole day was excellent and such a thrill to try an old art. Special mention to Debbie for the magnificent food. "
