Event description

Description

On This Course You Will Learn:
How to transform the shape of steel using heat and blacksmithing techniques.

On day 1 you will be introduced to the tools used by blacksmiths and use them to learn techniques that will allow you to manipulate hot metal into different shapes. By the end of the day you will have a good understanding of the forms that blacksmithing can produce and how to achive them.

Throughout the day we will look at the different approaches needed to work with flat, round and square steel stock. You will try hammering, bending, twisting, spreading, punching and chiselling metal.

On day 2 you will be able to work at your own pace under our guidance to develop the processes you learnt on day 1. You will have the opportunity to produce an object of your own design or work on one or our suggested projects.


Who is the course suitable for?
The course is suitable for complete beginners who have never tried blacksmithing before. We won’t be doing anything too strenuous so there’s no need to worry that you’re not strong enough.

What is included?
All materials are included in the course fee. Personal protective equipment is also provided and must be worn at all times. We will provide refreshments.

What should I wear?
It is essential that you wear old clothes made of natural fibres i.e. not made of a flammable material such as polyester. You must also wear sturdy shoes that cover your whole foot (if you are wearing sandals you will not be allowed to participate in the course).

What should I bring?
You might want to bring a note book. Most importantly you will need to bring a packed lunch. Please be aware that there are no cafes or shops within walking distance of the forge.
