A two-day blacksmithing course designed to give participants the skills, experience and confidence to work independently on a forge.

The first day of the course will focus on tending a forge and learning about the different elements of a blacksmithing workshop. This includes the tools and equipment commonly used. You will work through a series of exercises with support from our expert technician to become confident in the vocabulary and skill of basic blacksmithing techniques. 

Building on this learning on the second day, you will be supported to apply your new skills and knowledge to work on your own piece. Selected from a range of possible projects you will be able to be creative with your new skills.
