Things To Do

Blacksmithing for Beginners Taster Day

11 Jun 2019
31 Dec 2019
12:00AM - 6:00PM

Give the gift of a day's blacksmithing course or buy for yourself!

Once the fires are lit and the health and safety chat is out of the way you will get straight down to the business of hammering some hot steel. The day is fully hands on and as well as learning the basic principles of blacksmithing, you will make up to three items to take home with you.

Please visit the AW Artist Blacksmiths website for further information about the course.

What's included in the price?

All Courses include materials. PPE will be provided but please wear sturdy shoes/boots and old clothes. No Fleeces please.

A good hearty vegetarian lunch is provided and we try where possible to use locally sourced produce. Teas, coffee and refreshments are on a constant supply.

If you have any special dietary requirements please let the venue know in advance and they will endeavour to meet them.

The Forge workshop is situated in the rural outskirts of Yarm, in the heart of the Tees Valley. All work carried is handcrafted and the business has been trading since 2004.

Adrian Wood is a university graduate with a degree in fine art sculpture from The University of London. A chance visit to a forge gave Adrian Wood his first taste of blacksmithing. He recalls; "From the first moment I hit the hot steel I knew what I wanted to do."
