This one day course will introduce you to the basics of Blacksmithing and hand forge work.
Starting with fire control and hand hammer work, you will learn carbon steel forging and make small objects such as a poker or hook, you will leave with an authentically hand forged object.
Forges are hot and can be noisy- eye & ear protection will be provided and please wear solid boots and clothes suitable for working in (made of natural fibres). Forges can also be smoky, if you have any respiratory ailments please bear this in mind.
Participants must be fit and agile enough to stand all day by the forges, wield a hammer multiple times and be outside in the weather at this time of year.
