This week long residential course is a chance to learn the fundamentals of blacksmithing in a beautiful place. With tuition by artisan blacksmith Andy of Feather Forge, this is a week long course for beginners. We’ll start by learning the basics of moving metal with hammer and anvil, along with managing a traditional coal forge, before progressing to forge your very own set of fire irons to take home.

Every student will have their own forge and anvil to work from, but must be prepared for more hammer puns than they can shake a stick at.
