Course programme

Right from the start you'll be making, not just watching. You will experience the thrill of working with hot metal and discover the satisfaction of seeing completed pieces you have made with your own hands.

The techniques you will learn:

  • drawing down
  • splitting
  • punching
  • making scrolls
  • twisting

You will make:

  • a rat tail poker
  • a decorative bracket for a garden hanging basket
  • a ram's head toasting fork

You will learn about the forge environment, how to use tools efficiently and safely and why it's important to use them in the correct way. In addition to your practical tuition, you will also learn about the history and background to the craft.
