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.

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."
