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.

"Great course! Richard was super helpful and friendly, he explained each step of the process well and helped showed you how to correct any mistakes and I got to leave with a handmade knife at the end of the day! "

"My 16 yr old has expressed an interest in Blacksmithing and after a rather difficult year with Long covid I decided to get him an experience with Richard for a gift . Richard was very welcoming, & knowledgable ... my son had a brilliant morning crafting a Viking womens knife . He has some experience anyway with welding & so loved getting to craft his knife . The forge is set in a picturesque village and Richard is really generous with his time. We shall definitely go back . Many thanks Richard "

"Thanks so much to Richard for not accepting I was useless and he did most of the knife! It was a fantastic day - using the furnace, hammers(!) & sanders (!). I have a fantastic knife that everyone thinks I made all in my own - thanks again "

"Just Do It! Spent a brilliant day with Richard yesterday making plant supports in the shape of birds. He's a great teacher and I learned LOADS of skills. Couldn't recommend it any more highly. Just Do It!"
