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.

"Cannot recommend this blacksmithing taster day enough!! If you are curious about it, definitely try it out with Adrian and his amazing team. Everyone was so lovely and helpful, and even though I was there alone, I felt instantly welcomed by the whole team. Be prepared for some of the tastiest homemade/local food, which will help energise you for your day of hammering. I am so glad that I did it, and would recommend it to anyone else without hesitation.

"Debbie and Adrian were amazing. Debbie is a wonderful host, greeting us with tea and biscuits was amazing and a lovely lunch. We were supported through our attempts to make keyrings and dragon hooks. One of the best days we have had all year. Thank you. "

"I absolutely loved this day! From the moment you arrive and are met with homemade biscuits and tea you just know it’s going to be a good day! Adrian and Andy are friendly and very helpful. Debbie is a demon cook…..prepare to eat masses of lovely food ❤️ I loved learning about the craft of the blacksmith. And making items that no-one else has makes me very proud and happy! I will definitely be looking to book again. Can highly recommend. "
