  • Booking essential

Spend two days learning some of the more complicated skills of blacksmithing. This course is designed to help you with areas of blacksmithing that you are keen to develop or improve, so make sure to let us know techniques and areas you'd like to know more about to help us tailor the course. Across two days there will be lots of time to develop your blacksmithing skills, whilst receiving expert, one-on-one, advice and guidance from Master Blacksmith David Gregory. The number of participants is limited to ensure that everyone has plenty of time to ask questions and spend time one on one with the course tutor.

This course is designed for those who have either previously attended one of our introduction to blacksmithing courses, or who have some previous experience blacksmithing. The content the course will be dictated by the skills and techniques the participants are interested in learning, so please indicate these when booking.

David Gregory is an experienced master blacksmith whose work includes original commissions and a wide range of restoration projects. David also occasionally takes commissions for film and television productions. This course is limited to six participants to allow everyone plenty of time with the course tutor.

This two day course takes place on Wednesday 16 & Thursday 17 October. Accommodation is not included in the price. There will be a break for lunch and a mess room to eat lunch in, alternatively there is an on-site café. Tea and coffee provided.
