Maker's bio

I'm Richard, a traditionally trained blacksmith with a passion for ironwork. I trained at Hereford's National School of Blacksmithing which gave me an excellent start into the world of forging metal. I moved to Yorkshire to be close to family and start my own business, which has given me the opportunity to offer classes so that others can have a taste of what it is like to be a blacksmith. Some examples of what can be made in the class can be seen in the gallery.

Heidi Pepper reviewed: Blacksmithing Experience in Grassington (3 hours)

"This was the best experience! I’ve loved everything about it. It was easy to book, easy to find, great communication. The day itself was great ( I was very excited to have a go at this!) Richard was a great teacher and explained the process well including the science behind blade making. It was a very friendly environment. I was super pleased with the finished product, I made a toasting fork. I will definitely be returning to make something else😊 Thank you Richard for a fabulous experience "

"What a fantastic day. Thank you so much Richard for being so welcoming, helpful and for not laughing at the size of my final knife. I genuinely cannot recommend this course highly enough. Honestly, the day flew over and I'll definitely be booking on another course. Once again, thanks ever so much Richard for being so brilliant."
