Event description

Description

The sight of glowing hot metal being pulled from a blacksmith’s fire is something that many may have seen, have you ever wanted to see what it takes to get metal to that state?

Have you ever wondered what’s so different about a blacksmith’s hammer? Did you ever want to feel how it feels strike steel? To know that you had a hand in the end result, of something that until then, was only something you’d like to see happen?

If you or anyone you know has always wanted to have a go at blacksmithing why not book a time to come along and learn about fire and metal the blacksmith’s way!

A personal blacksmith experience day where I will teach:

Fire lighting Learning and observing the different solid fuels used for lighting the fire. How to make good use of the fuel to start the fire and getting the fire to a working temperature.

Using fire to get metal hot Once the fire is up to heat we will be observing how the fire is used to get the metal hot and how best to use the fire to achieve the optimum heat.

Learning the application of various tools to help with the forging of material. I will take you through the various tools on the small anvil and explain how we will be using them to make our small knife.

Petefire Artist Blacksmith – blacksmithing experience, knives

Collaboratively make a small knife using a piece of spring material. We will then proceed to make a small knife, unless we agree upon a similar sized creation.

Heat treatment The knife will then be heat treated.

Finish knife sanding and sharpening are the final stages of making of a completed knife.
