Description

On This Course You Will Learn:
The core techniques used by blacksmiths to shape steel.
You will be learn how to bend and shape steel using a gas forge, hammers and anvils. We will guide you through the steps needed to make a simple object that incorporates many of the fundamental techniques used by blacksmiths.

What will I make on the course?
By the end of the class you will have made a beautiful 'S' hook.

Who is the course suitable for?
This course is aimed at young people aged between 11 and 16. 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. Please be aware that there are no cafes or shops within walking distance of the forge so you might also want to bring something to eat or drink.

Age requirements
This class is specifically for young people aged between 11 and 16 years old. Young people attending the course must arrive with a parent, guardian or other authorised adult who will be required to sign a a form confirming that they allow the child to take part in the class. Accompanying adults are not required to stay in the forge during the lesson but may do so if they wish. No young people are allowed to leave the forge by themselves without an accompanying adult so it is important that you arrive on time at the end of the class to collect the child you have brought or additional fees may be incurred.
