Suitable for beginners to experienced blacksmiths
This course is aimed at adults, aged 18yrs +
Over this two day course, award winning blacksmith Rich Jones will introduce you to the forge and the elementary techniques of blacksmithing. Using basic forging techniques, you will make a simple fire poker on day one, learning the skills needed to twist and flare your metal.
On day two, you will apply your new ironwork skills to a simple design of your own... you could make a candle stick or a bird feeder, a door handle or a door knocker... the choice is yours.
You will be asked to send a few design ideas before the course, giving Rich a chance to think about how best you achieve your project.
