Learn the Basics of Blacksmithing and Forging- Beginner Experience Day

In-person course
Adria Neville - - #34488

This is a great course if you have no experience or like me it’s been a few decades since you did any forge work.
Jon explains and guides you through a hands on course in a friendly professional way and I managed to complete three pieces of work.
From lighting the coal forge to heating and twisting metal through to normalising and hardening metal to completing your pieces.
This was a really fun course and I really recommend it to you.

I had a great day making a knife. Jon is an excellent teacher and has a great forge. I will definitely be back to make an axe at some point in the future.

I had a fantastic day crafting a beautiful knife which I now use everyday! Jon is very patient and explains each step clearly and the reasons behind it. Totally recommend. Plus the home made sausage rolls and cookies were to die for.

Had an awesome day at Kerr forge! 100% worth the time and money. As a nerd, the best part was to finally find a real-life use-case for high school chemistry.

Jon was a fantastic tutor and guided me through each step. It was a very professional course whilst being friendly and relaxed. Jon took time to talk through traditional methods and I came away with a new appreciation of the forging process as well as a lovely knife.

This was a great course. Jon is a knowledgeable and patient tutor, and makes sure you get stuck in to all of the processes, whilst understanding how and why they work. A lot goes into forging a knife, and the result is something durable and usable, and made by you. I'd highly recommend this, and I'll probably go back to make something else too.

I had a fantastic day making a lovely kitchen knife with Jon. Jon's forge is a brilliant work space and Jon's friendly, knowledgeable tuition makes the day incredibly enjoyable. I would 100% reccomended anyone thinking about giving this a go to book with confidence that you will have an excellent and worthwhile experience.
