Blacksmithing Weekend - 8th & 9th June 2019
Saturday 8th & Sunday 9th June 2019
10:00 - 17:00
Tutor: Joe Tyler
An exciting weekend discovering the traditional art of blacksmithing, this course will teach you to create your own products including jewellery, intricate candle sticks, fire pokers or paper weights from reclaimed metal material.
We will spend the first day understanding the basics of blacksmithing and why blacksmiths work in the way they do. A few practice strikes will be made before the afternoon session where we will get to grips with producing a simple item to take home.
The second day will focus on refining our technique, learning more about how blacksmithing works and producing more challenging items such as bracelets, pendants and/or more challenging candle stick designs.
Participants are able to choose what to make from a variety of items such as bracelets, pendants, candle holders, fire pokers, paper weights or plant supports.
