One-to-One & Couple's Blacksmithing Days

Have a go at blacksmithing with a one-to-one beginners' experience days at Finedon Hill Forge and take home what you make. These days are structured with a set of projects each teaching you different skills and building on the last.  The days have been designed to suit all abilities ensuring you take home usable items and have fun making them.

The day starts at 10am with an introduction to the workshop, workshop safety and the tools. During the day you will be learning basic skills from a full time professional blacksmith. Skills covered range from lighting the fire, drawing out, scrolling and twisting to making useful items including an S-hook, a bottle opener and a decorative toasting fork.

Under 18s are welcome with a parent or guardian, minimum age 12 years old. (No extra charge for the non-participating guardian)

The forge is a few minutes diving distance from Wellingborough and Finedon but it is suggested you bring your lunch with you. (There is a kettle over the fire; coffee is provided but not lunch)
