Tutor Adrian Wood leads workshops in Blacksmithing in many venues across the north of the country. His courses are always popular and fill up very quickly. He works on decorative blacksmithing commissions for many clients in his own forge at Hornby, Teeside when he’s not teaching others. Have a look at his website here – www.awartistblacksmiths.co.uk
You will need to wear layers of old clothing as it can be hot work and sensible shoes (not plastic). Safety glasses will be provided along with a thick apron. Mobile forges and anvils are set up so everyone can work together.
Basic blacksmithing skills will be taught to create a selection of items from key rings, curved hooks, toasting forks pokers and dragon hooks.
