blacksmithing courses

Suitable for beginners and those who have just always had a hankering to try their hand at this ancient craft, our monthly one and two day blacksmithing courses with Aaron Petersen of 'Ferric Fusion' have featured in the National press and numerous UK wide magazines.

Our dates are listed below -  if you want a specific date please contact us before you purchase to enquire about availability as your desired date may be already booked up. 

You can also purchase a non date specific gift certificate which is valid for a year. We can personalise this if you tell us the name of WHO it is for and who it is FROM. It is sent as an email attachment that prints out as an A4 document (looks great printed, rolled and tied with a ribbon). The recipient must email us to book their course within a year of the date on the gift certificate, we cannot guarantee a specific date and advise booking as soon as you are able. Our 2019 dates will be announced in November.

Please note that the course is not residential - we do provide information on some local places to stay. There are a large number of places to stay within a 10 mile radius of the forge. To read more visit our blacksmithing site to read reviews visit
