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.

"I booked this mainly for my boyfriend to make a knife and we loved it. I was genuinely terrible at blacksmithing (couldn’t hit it hard enough, melted the entire thing multiple times) and Richard was so helpful in making sure I left with a knife LOL. Really fun day out and a great gift!"

"Richard was brilliant. A really good full day of fun and creativity. Richard was always there to supervise and assist but let us get on to produce 2 swords in 1 day. A great introduction into working with a forge and metal. Superb day definitely recommend Ember Iron works. "
