Blacksmithing Day

Stroud

Event time: Sat 30th Nov at 9:00am - Sat 30th Nov at 4:00pm

During the Blacksmithing day workshop participants will have the opportunity to learn and experience the ancient elements of forge work: fire use and maintenance, heating the steel to around 1000 C, and hammering it on an anvil to produce graceful and long lasting items for day-to-day use.

Employing centuries-old technology and techniques you will be introduced to basic processes of tapering, bending, twisting, cutting, hole-punching and flattening hot steel. Learning these methods will enable participants to make a variety of useful items to take home and use for years to come.
