  • In-Person Course

Learn how to work smith and striker to forge hot steel in small groups to forge a hand axe each. This is an excellent course for groups and does require team work to move the metal where you want it to go. The day is split into three parts. Part one is forging out the axe, Part two is heat treating the axe to turn it in to a working tool, and part three is shaping and hafting (handling) the axe. By the end of the day, you have a fully working hand axe to take away with you. For people who have done some forging before, try your hands at making something more tricky, like a bearded axe. This is also open to re-enactors who wish to make a blunt fighting axe. You will need to wear work type clothes, no nylon or synthetics etc. (Jeans and T-shirt most appropriate, expect sparks & flames) Also safety boots are preferred otherwise leather or walking boots are best. No open toed footwear is allowed in the forge for safety reasons. Over 18's only.  

What's included in the price

All the tools, materials, P.P.E (safety glasses, hearing protection, apron, etc) Free tea, coffee and squash provided but please bring your own packed lunch.
